Morocco Library Project Short Story Competition

2021: The 2nd Annual Competition


Morocco has a rich tradition of storytelling, and we're honored to help launch a new generation of storytellers from the deserts and mountains of this fascinating culture. The theme this year is "Life in Morocco" — past, present, or future. To learn more, contact Larbi Arbaoui.

The 2021 stories are now being reviewed. As we did for 2020, we'll publish an anthology of stories in a printed book for the MLP libraries and in digital form to share with the world. Check back in early 2022 for the anthology of stories. Thank you!
