- 21 March 2019, American University in Dubai (6:00-7:30 pm, room C227)
Poetry Workshop: by Drs Omar Sabbagh and Roula-Maria Dib:
This poetry workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to study the craft of poetry with two of AUD’s most accomplished poets. The event will be divided into three component parts:
1) Reading sample poems together and understanding how they work and what makes them successful;
2) Facilitating guests to write their own poems;
3) Workshopping those products individually and/or by group. Participants will have an opportunity to read their poems aloud at the conclusion of the event.
This is one of the events that AUD will be hosting for the Month of Reading, which has been declared by the UAE Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development. Open to the wider Dubai community with an interest in poetry, writing, books, reading and the contemporary liberal arts. We would like to invite students from Dubai High Schools. Please note that a certificate of participation will be given to attendees.
