Participants at the panel discussion included Saleha Ghabish, Secretary General of Emirates Writers Union (EWU); Emirati poet Abdullah Al Hadiya; Dr. Ali Abdulqader Al Hammadi, Director General of the Arabic Language Protection Association; Fathiya Al Nimr, novelist; Aisha Abdullah, author; and Ali Al Abdan, critic and researcher.

Under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah and the Honorary President of EWU, May 26 is celebrated as Emirati Writer’s Day every year. Coinciding with the founding day of EWU, the Emirati Writer’s Day honours the literary craft of the UAE’s writers that are enriching the cultural landscape of the region.
