The Untitled Chapters Team is proud to announce about a 4 day writing workshop!
This workshop is organized by the Goethe-Institut, the official German cultural organization, which has been organizing writing workshops. Last year the main focus for the workshop is Emiratis writing for children; this year the main focus of the workshop is writing books for Teens
The Goethe-Institut believe that there are very few books for teens in Arabic and almost none written by Emiratis for Emirati teenagers, they would like to invite talented Emirati authors to work on their teen book projects with an experienced teen novel author, exchange ideas with other Emirati authors and discuss the chances and challenges of writing for teens in the UAE.
The workshop will be conducted (in English) by German star author and very experienced workshop instructor Kirsten Boie whose bestseller “Alhambra” has recently been translated into Arabic.
The workshop will take place in Abu Dhabi from 26.03. – 29.03.2012 (all day). A total of 4 days.
Admission is free.
How to Register?
As places are limited, interested authors are kindly asked to submit a synopsis (1-2 pages) of their teen book project in either English or Arabic
Deadline for this: 30 January 2012
Allocation of the places will be based on the submission of the synopsis.
They have invited the members of Untitled Chapters in order to join this in hopes of helping inspiring writers with their idea, get feedback, discuss ideas and “fill in the gaps” in your story with other writers and an acclaimed published author in this field. Last year’s feedback came out with very positive responses.
The final schedule will be sent out to confirmed participants at the end of February/beginning of March.
We hope to see many of you attending this; it sounds like a wonderful opportunity for all Female Emirati Writers to grow and learn from other writers Whoever wants to apply, drop us an DM or a comment below and we will send you the email that you can use to submit your story
