Sirocco publishing was created in 2007 in Casablanca to support, unearth, and amplify Moroccan voices of yesterday or today. Their editorial choices are essentially guided by a passion for Morocco, its history, its heritage, its culture in its various expressions, without excluding other perspectives from the southern Mediterranean. Their list, including some co-publishing projects, is francophone and generalist. It is unique in that it reflects the enthusiasm of discoveries and encounters, built at their own pace. Recipient in 2013 of the Grand Atlas Prize (category Francophone essays) awarded to one of their publications, Sirocco Publishing now also publishes literature.
