The launch took place in a ceremony attended by representatives of key partners, officials of Qatar Charity, judges, writers and those interested in the cultural field.
Significantly, the programme will allow, for the first time, students with special needs and Qatar University (QU)’s male and female students to take part in the competitive activities of this edition to help “discover their hidden creative talents”, QC has said in a statement.
The students belonging to primary and preparatory schools in Qatar can participate in the programme as usual.

Speaking at the ceremony, al-Emadi said: “The ‘Future’s Writers’ programme moves ahead constantly and confidently, improving its editions in terms of quantity and quality to reach new students and nurture talents in them. It also intends to hold advanced training events and partner with relevant national parties to contribute to the service of the local community and provide its creative arena with promising writers.”
He also emphasised that the programme, through continuous co-operation with its partners, would take a quantum leap forward in its fourth season, allowing university students (from QU) and students with special needs to take part in its competitive activities for the first time to discover hidden writing talents in them and develop them.
Al-Emadi praised the support and co-operation of the partners, including the Ministry of Culture and Sports, Ministry of Education and Higher Education, QU, Qatari Authors’ Forum, Khair Jalees Book Club and Lusail Publishing and Distribution House.
