The Emirates Airline Festival of Literature is the Middle East’s largest celebration of the written and spoken word, bringing people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds together with authors from around the world to promote education, debate and, above all, a love of reading and writing, in a celebratory and enjoyable way.

The LitFest, as it has become known, creates a wonderful opportunity for UAE nationals, residents and visitors to meet renowned authors, writers, speakers and thinkers. It provides the chance to attend literary discussions, listen to readings, participate in workshops, and experience the exciting Fringe and children’s events.

With simultaneous translation between Arabic and English in all sessions, the LitFest strives to break down all barriers to communication, so ideas are truly shared and friendships formed – not least among the authors themselves.
