The writers’ role as custodians of their language and cultural ambassadors to the world

“The writers’ role as custodians of their language and cultural ambassadors to the world. Literature transcends cultural boundaries by chronicling the people’s lives, relating the histories of nations, and introducing local culture to the international audience. These are Sharjah’s concerted efforts to strengthen literary forums that embody profound thought and a creative spirit, with the objective of enhancing their influence on local, regional, and international stages. Pioneers in literature must lead efforts to enrich and strengthen the Arabic language in society while casting light on social issues that reflect the complexities of local social dynamics in their writing.”
