Creative Writing Course with Ibrahim Nasrallah

Event 818 Sunday 4 March, 9.30am-5pm Al Amwaj 2, InterContinental

Award-winning author Ibrahim Nasrallah is coming to Dubai to teach a one-day creative writing course to aspiring novelists writing in Arabic.

Focusing on diversity in writing, Nasrallah’s course explores the importance of offering readers a wider variety of stories – in both subject matter and style. How can writers break out of their comfort zone and diversify their writing? This course will teach how, and Nasrallah will guide participants in their exploration of new forms, new vocabulary, new ideas – everything needed to write new stories!

Please download the outline here for full details of the day’s activities.

The tutor: Ibrahim Nasrallah is a successful author who, in his latest book, has made his own stylistic leap. Dog War II, set in a corrupt but highly advanced future dystopia, is groundbreaking in style and content. He has written 14 poetry collections, 16 novels, and several non-fiction books. His novel Time of White Horses was shortlisted for the IPAF, Kilimanjaro Spirit won the Katara Prize, and he has received the Sultan Owais Literary Award for Poetry and Jerusalem Award for Culture and Creativity for his body of work.

Lunch and coffee breaks are included.

Make sure to arrive for registration and introductions at 9:30 so the course can begin promptly at 10:00.

Ibrahim Nasrallah: Dog War II

Event 24 Friday 2 March, 4pm-5pm Al Ras 3, InterContinental

In 2006, Ibrahim Nasrallah finally fulfilled his dream of becoming a full-time writer. With the freedom to write, he has produced some of his best work, including the IPAF-shortlisted Time of White Horses, Lanterns of the King of Galilee and Kilimanjaro Spirit – the last inspired by his journey with volunteers and disabled Palestinian children to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

In this conversation he will talk about his writing, the challenges he faced growing up and his shift from telling the story of 250 years of recent Palestinian history to his surprise move into futuristic dystopian fiction in Dog War II.
