About

My name is khulud khamis, and I am a Palestinian writer living in Haifa. My first novel, Haifa Fragments, was published in 2015 by the Australian independent publisher Spinifex Press. It was also published by New Internationalist in England and translated into Turkish and Italian. The Italian translation, Frammenti di Haifa, received second place in the Premio Letterario Citta di Siena literary award.

In 2017, I left my paid job to care for my disabled mother and spend more time with her. She died in early 2019, and since then I have not gone back to paid employment. During this time, I have been generously supported by my father and partner. But now it is time for me to regain my financial independence, and I would like to do so by doing what I'm most passionate about: creative writing.

Currently, I have two major writing projects going on:
(1) I'm working on my second book – a memoir about the process of grieving my mother, and the ten years caring for her while she had been living with complex disabilities.
(2) An ongoing creative writing course, where you will be invited to join me on a journey of discovering your own creativity and your unique voice. I will be sharing my own process of writing, inviting you to experiment, guiding you gently on your journey, and offering constructive feedback.
  • Whether you're writing (or aspiring to write) fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, or any other form of creative writing, you'll find something of value in these workshops. Because like any other artist, a writer needs to practice in order to improve her writing. I hope that most, if not all, the practice writing assignments here will enrich your writing and open up your creative channels.
By supporting me, you will be supporting my work, enabling me to focus on my writing. Depending on the level of your support, you will be receiving monthly chapters of the creative writing workshop, a piece of writing from my current writing project, receive feedback on your writing, have the opportunity to interact with other Patrons through discussions under the published writing pieces, and more.

You can stop your support anytime or changing the amount. If you need technical assistance with this, don't hesitate to get in touch and I will gladly help you. 
Goals
$36 of $50 per month
I will be donating 10% of all support to a local, Haifa-based women's feminist collective, for their Emergency Fund that supports women without civic status (asylum seekers, former trafficking victims, migrant workers whose visa has expired, and Palestinian women from the West Bank).
