Paid Student Sessions

The Emirates Literature Foundation is a non-profit making organisation which aims to foster a life-long love of all forms of reading. To enable us to reach as many young readers as possible, some of our events are paid; these paid events help support our broad Education Programme. During the Festival, the Paid Student Sessions are those events that we feel have strong educational value and often link directly to the curriculum.

In 2019, you can look forward to Author Sessions for Primary and Secondary students. These Paid Student Sessions will take place at the InterContinental Event Centre, Dubai Festival City as part of the EAFOL Education Programme on Tuesday 5, Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 March.

Tickets cost AED45 per student, and need to be purchased in advance. Accompanying teachers will receive free tickets.

What our teachers are saying

“Students returned excited and motivated from both the sessions: “I learnt never to give up” and “Don’t ever quit, follow your dreams.”

Fatema Kashief, English Coordinator – Year 3 to 8, Pristine Private School

“It was very helpful and very inspiring. Ali Sparkes was able to bring out the beast of an author in them!”

Mirard A Magsipoc, English Coordinator, The Philippine Global School

“Poetry Live was a fantastic experience. The poets were really engaging and the pupils enjoyed the questions. The examiner sections were very informative and just the right length to pass on valuable advice without losing the interest of the pupils.”

Clare Boyes, Head of English, Kent College Dubai
