Emirati Poets in London

The spotlight’s on poetic talent from the United Arab Emirates in an evening of readings, discussion and a Q&A with celebrated Emirati poets.

Find out more about Nabati, a 'people's poetry' that has recently become a UAE television phenomenon with Million's Poet, the country's equivalent to X Factor.

This event is part of the World Poets series, which has seen the National Poetry Library host poets from Syria, South Korea, Mexico and Indonesia.
