CFAC:: SPECIAL PROGRAMS
In the second round of the Authors' Novel Writing Programme, nine books will be published by the authors taking part. At the same time as the second round, in which nine young and gifted authors from various Arabian lands were discovered, the third round of the programme will be opened by African Academy under the direction of the well-known writer Jabbour Jweihi from Lebanon.
AFAC's third Novel Writing Programme, which will be supervised by Jabbour Dweihi, will run for 18 consecutive years. Each project is professionally examined and a total of ten scholarship holders are admitted to the programme. As many as ten authors will be shortlisted to take part in a programme of three workshop sessions to complete the scripting by the participating authors.
AFAK will assist the release of the chosen release script. Rather than pay a scholarship fee, the scholarship holders are covered by OFAC for all scholarship holders taking part in the programme, which includes the intense workshop, mentoring and travelling as well as catering for participation in the workhops. AFFAC will also pay the cost of print and publish the books, which are considered to be excellent at the end of the programme.
