I am a certified publishing professional with 20 years of experience in the field. I am fluent in Arabic, English and French and have a good command of Italian. My professional services include – but are not limited to – writing, editing and translation. I have translated over 30 books (mainly novels and children’s books) and have written a number of children’s books that are soon to be released.
In 1999, I joined Dar Akhbar Al-Yom, an Egyptian press foundation, first as a
freelance translator, then as a permanent journalist, simultaneously working in three of its weekly publications: Akhbar Al-Adab (literary newspaper), Akhbar Al-Nogoum (entertainment magazine) and Akhbar Al-Yom (weekly general newspaper).
In 2001, I joined the team of Dar El-Shorouk, an Egyptian publishing house, as
projects manager, children’s books department. My job required a big involvement in the production process of children’s books, which included: writing evaluation reports on manuscripts suggested for publishing, negotiating terms of copyrights agreements, editing, translating, collaborating with authors and illustrators and following up on the design phase.
In 2007, I moved to Shorouk Bookstores (a sister company of Dar El-Shorouk’s) as area manager, where I was running the operations of three of its branches.
In 2013, I joined the Book and Magazine Publishing Program, at the Story Arts Centre, Centennial College, Canada, from which I graduated in June 2014.
