Dina is available for both in person and virtual book readings, given COVID-19. She has read both her and other’s books in English and Arabic to schools and foundations. See examples from the Qatar Foundation here.
Schools, nurseries, and bookstores often invite author Dina Elabd to come read her books to their students. Dina is always happy to read to organizations or individuals, in person or virtually via Skype. Schools and bookstores Dina has read at include: Balsam bookstore, Shorouk Kids Bookshop, Diwan bookstore, AIS school, CAC school, BISC school, CISE school, Alsson school, Malvern school, Europa Schule New Cairo, NCBIS school, and BISM school Madinaty.
It’s so important to save time and money by consulting with a professional. Dina has worked in the publishing industry for over 10 years across languages and regions, and helped publish over 40 books. As your book coach, she will guide you through the process of becoming a published author from the text until the book in your hands!
Dina works with her company Arabic Book A Month to offer annual Writer’s Workhops, as well as on demand for schools and organizations. She helps walk you through how to write a good children’s book, covering the plot diagram, character creation, tension and conflict, climax, and resolution. Also, you’ll learn how to work with an illustrator, and help you write your story and get it ready to be sent to a publisher. Our last workshop was a great success and 4 of the books written were selected for publishing!
