The Department of Culture and Information has always devoted itself to literature and creativity in all fields, as for poetry and art, it was essential to support the young poets through motivational tools such as forums, seminars, lectures, workshops, and awards.
The Sharjah Young Poets Forum is created under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah. Honouring poets in their countries and with their family is His Highness’s ultimate message in this Forum. Celebrating poets, protecting poetry, connecting the Arab region through culture and poetry is few of several objectives of this Forum as well as supporting and encouraging young poets through awards and honourable mentions.
The Forum is held each year in one or more countries in the Arab world, a gesture to honour the young poets in the region. All the submissions are read by a specialised committee, giving each and every individual an honest assessment and encourage them to continue further to have an exceedingly cultivated generation that never stops giving to the society.
