The Publishing house, founded in Damascus in (2005), was established in honour of the late Syrian writer Mamdouh Adwan (1941-2004), who wrote more than ninety publications in poetry, drama, novel and different translations. Our publishing house came as a realization of his dream to establish a publishing house that provides a platform for new writers and translators.

Hence, the publishing house is first and foremost dedicated to publishing distinct literary and intellectual books of new writers and translators whose works would enrich the Arabic library.
Drawing on its awareness of the importance of revitalizing the cultural life and raising awareness on the different forms of cultural achievements and their huge impact on the formation of intellectual awareness in Arab societies; the publishing house is keen to publish important Arab literary works which are no longer available in the markets, and to provide accurate translations and revised versions for books of international writers.

The publishing house ceased its operations between 2012 and 2014 due to the compelling circumstances witnessed by Syria. However, it resumed its work by the end of 2014, and currently has more than 250 titles including: poetry, drama, intellectual and literary studies, short stories, and novels of writers from different Arab countries, as well as translations from English, French, Spanish, Swedish, and German.

In Sharjah Book fair 2016 the publishing house was awarded as Best Arabic Publishing House 2016.
