One of the Festival’s goals is to spread a love of reading across the UAE. That’s why we curate a special Education Programme each year.

  • Schools can book tickets to one of our education sessions in English or Arabic. Festival Authors sign their books after their sessions, allowing your students the chance to own a signed copy.
  • Work with your students to place a free bid to win a visit from a LitFest author, so you can bring the magic of the LitFest back to your school!
  • Help your students apply for a slot on our Fringe Stage to showcase their talents in front of an international audience!

And that’s not all. The Emirates Literature Foundation also runs student competitions throughout the year, with the winners announced each year during a special prize ceremony at the LitFest. Interested in taking part? Join our education mailing list so we can notify you when our competitions open again!
