Friday Feature: Syrian Literature


Poet/songwriter/shop owner in Damascus

Reading fiction can provide meaningful insight into client cultural beliefs and experiences.

We’re all learning about Syrian culture in anticipation of increased resettlement of Syrian refugees in the coming years,

Here’s a list of 10 Syrian writers, including women, minority voices, poets, playwrights and Ambassadors.

A second list from a different source includes some overlap, but focuses on Syrian writers available to English language readers.

Anyone read anything by them? Anyone have other recommendations for a future Friday Feature related to Syrians? Let us know at

(On occasional Fridays, we highlight one entertainment option related to our clients or some aspect of our work to help you celebrate the weekend and possibly recommend to employers and other community supporters in the following week.)
