Aspiring poets, this is your time!

If you are looking for ways to get more attention for your poetry, maybe it’s time to get working on your first chapbook.

In this interactive workshop, award-winning poet and artist Shamma Al Bastaki will guide you through the process of both writing poetry and putting together a chapbook— from selecting a theme and choosing the most suitable poems to production and distribution.

The Tutor: Shamma Al Bastaki graduated from NYU Abu Dhabi with a double major in sociology & public policy and literature & creative writing. Ambassador for the Louvre Abu Dhabi since 2015, she was selected for the prestigious Salama Bint Hamdan Emerging Artists Fellowship. Shamma won the 2019 ADMAF Creativity Award for her ethno-poetry collection House to House |بيت لبيت’, excerpted in the Asymptote Journal of Global Contemporary Literature, and taught in universities and schools across Japan, Taiwan, and the US. She has been commissioned by Louvre Abu Dhabi, the UAE Minister of Tolerance, and had a special feature on CNN.
