Storytelling in the Arabian region links narrative to reality within a powerful human framework. Many writers publish short story collections that can capture inspiration, symbolism and image as powerfully as longer form writing, But is the short story still seen as capable of both amazing and entertaining the reader?

How relevant is the format within the Arabic cultural scene today? Has it been ignored in favour of novels, or does it deserve to receive just as much attention?

These questions will be posed to short story writer Afra Mahmood.

Afra Mahmood is an Emirati writer whose short story collection is titled, White Bed, as well as a story in children’s literature and an adult novel in the process of publishing.
