Publishing Programme

Join us for the Festival’s popular Publishing Programme, where speakers from across the Arab world and further afield will present lively and interactive sessions aimed at publishing professionals, writers and all those with an interest in the industry.

The Programme focuses on the book industry, with topics this year ranging from the benefits that book tracking can bring to the region, through representation in children’s books to new approaches to publicising publishing in a rapidly changing industry. There will be expert discussions on the challenges of translating engaging literary fiction while retaining the author’s vision, and opportunities to network with other industry professionals.
