AUD Indelible Festival of Literature

Our forthcoming (and first ever) AUD Indelible Festival of Literature will be a public Zoom event.

Start Sun, Mar 14
End Wed, Mar 31
47,834

Indelible is a literary journal published by the American University in Dubai (AUD), reaching out to a broader community of writers, both established and emerging. Indelible’s name, inspired by the way the poet Hilda Doolittle (H.D.) used it in her poem Trilogy, refers to inerasable ink, which is a metaphor for the power of words.


The journal, therefore, seeks to publish works from distinguished writers and artists with strong voices and literary/artistic convictions that represent diverse interests and aesthetic styles. Each themed semi-annual issue, which is edited and managed by English department faculty and student members at AUD, presents an eclectic set of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, reviews, interviews, op-eds, and art. It is our great pleasure to promote our contributors in any way we can.


To keep up with Indelible’s news and events, follow us on Instagram and subscribe to our journal.


Our forthcoming (and first ever) AUD Indelible Festival of Literature will be a public Zoom event hosting world renown poets, novelists, literary agents, and writing stylists who will be sharing their work and ideas with an audience from around the world.
