Arabic writing in Africa, Europe and beyond

Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in Africa and the Middle East as well as one of the fastest growing in many parts of the world. Its speakers have developed an advanced ecosystem of publishers, writers, prizes, fellowships, and loads more.

On our livestream this month, we learn about the opportunities and challenges available to those who write in, understand, and follow writing in the Arabic language on the continent, Europe and further afield. We also learn about the unique things in Arabic writing and publishing where genre and style, as well as academia and models for commerce, are concerned.
