About the Emirates Literature Foundation 

The Emirates Literature Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation which supports and nurtures literature in the UAE and the region through a programme of varied cultural initiatives.

Established in 2013 by royal decree issued by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, the Foundation aims to foster a life-long love of all forms of literature. Recognising the importance of reading from a young age, the Foundation focuses on encouraging children and young people to enjoy reading for pleasure.

A key part of the Foundation’s initiatives includes showcasing international and regional writing talents through activities at the Dubai International Writers’ Centre which hosts a year-round programme of events in Arabic and English.

The Foundation is also the governing body of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, the UAE’s premiere literary festival, which will be held from 3-11 March, 2017.
