ArabLit (arablit), or Arabic Literature (in Translation), was founded by M Lynx Qualey in 2009, and has developed into a source of daily news and views on Arab and Arabic literature and translation. It has been used in classrooms, publishing houses, translators' & readers' homes, and elsewhere around the world.

In 2017, the site won the Literary Translation Initiative Award at the London Book Fair.

In 2018, thanks to YOUR help, ArabLit:

*Launched the ArabLit Story Prize on March 15. A four-story shortlist was announced on Sept 15, and our winner -- Muhammad Abdelnabi's "Our Story," tr. Robin Moger" -- was announced October 15.

*Launched ArabKidLitNow! in October.

*Launched the ArabLit Quarterly on November 15. All Patreon subscribers should have gotten a code for a free e-copy of that first issue and all subsequent ones.

*Opened an ArabLit Store with a handful of items, including a Bulaq podcast mug.

In 2020, we have:

*Launched the fifth issue of ArabLit Quarterly, with a theme of THE ROAD.

*Started a "lock-in literature" series for readers with limited access to books during the COVID-19 shutdowns.

*Started work on issues six and seven, CRIME and CATS.

*Expanded the Bulaq podcast, co-hosted by Ursula Lindsey and produced by SOWT.
