We meet writers in breathtaking destinations around the world for reading, writing, wellness, and inspiration. Celebrating the art of narrative and place, we host global experiences for the literati. These experiences may take shape as an international retreat or a local workshop. We are a brand new community established in February 2018, serving writers and wanderers who love getting lost in a good story or on the winding roads to far away places. Each adventure is curated to reflect the culture or locale in which we are engaged. We are based in Amsterdam, but you can join us wherever you find yourself on the map.

our Founder

Each Story Rebels retreat is designed by our founder Malika Ali Harding - a travel writer and photographer with an interdisciplinary background in cinema and contemporary art. She meets literary nomads in breathtaking destinations around the world for writing, creativity, and wellness. Working in collaboration with global thinkers in literature, art, music, food and design, she provides genuine opportunities to engage in eye-opening adventures. Each travel experience supports and spotlights our social justice platform - fortifying organizations that fight the epidemic of mass incarceration in the United States.
