We are huge fans of our weekly Book show here on The Word - every Monday from 1 - 30 pm.

Last week Yvette Judge gave us a huge exclusive with the announcement of the Dubai International Writer's Centre. 

The Dubai International Writers’ Centre is the first all-inclusive celebration of the written word in all its forms - writing; fiction and non-fiction; poetry; song lyrics; play writing; film scriptwriting; calligraphy – with a year-round programme of events catering to the multicultural and multinational communities living in the region.

The Centre brings together people of various backgrounds, cultures and interests and is a meeting point for residents and visitors to interact with each other, other cultures and with the Emirati culture of Dubai. The Centre is also an international hub for writers, providing a space for visiting writers and writers-in-residence to impart knowledge and expertise to locally-based writers and users of the Centre.

The diverse programme includes a host of international conferences focusing on writing and literature as well as regional events for academics, GCC citizens and residents. The Centre will also hold monthly readings in Arabic and English and writing groups appealing to Emiratis and UAE residents.

Budding authors, get involved! See this website for more details: https://www.emirateslitfest.com/press/diwc-to-open-in-november/
