Arabic Stories and Poetry in Translation is a series of workshops held at Birkbeck,  University of London and SOAS.  Refugee Host’s writer in residence, Yousif M. Qasmiyeh, will join author Selma Dabbagh, a British Palestinian fiction writer,  to lead a workshop exploring issues that face writers and artists ‘when they voice the world of Arabic culture, and find themselves acting as representatives – whether they wish to or not.’

The workshop will be held on the 30th of November, at the Keynes Library, Birkbeck, from 2.30pm – 5.30pm, with a public event held between 7.00pm and 8.30pm in Room 116, at the SOAS main building.  More information can be found here or contact
