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 2020, 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 Wednesday 5 February, and Thursday 6 February 2020.

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