“I am delighted to see this wonderful group of creative female writers united in a bond whose seed we planted more than three decades ago and whose harvest we reap with each successful forum. Our authors are cultural icons in our society, and their works are a part of our cultural heritage. This would not have been possible without the generous support of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, who made the emirate of Sharjah a home for intellectuals until literature and creativity became an integral part of Sharjah’s genuine identity. Notable for its distinctive buildings that encompass calligraphy, performing arts, and the academies of Arabic language and the Holy Quran. Sharjah’s dedication to preserving these monuments for future generations has astounded its visitors, and this is precisely what we hope to promote through cultural forums and gatherings in all emirates.”
