The Guild will host Manal Al-Sheikh (Iraq) and Mazen Maarouf (Palestine), two poets currently living in exile in Scandinavia for their work as writers and journalists.

As part of this program two short films will be screened which are included in Poets of Protest, an Al Jazeera produced documentary series by British filmmaker Roxana Vilk. The series focuses on six Middle Eastern authors and the relationship of their work to initiatives for democracy and social justice across the Middle East. Screenings will be followed by readings from Al-Sheikh and Maarouf.
