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.

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

In 2019, we plan to:

*Launch the ArabLit Quarterly: Winter 2019 issue (with a fantastic professional designer this time!)

*Announce judges & open up to the second annual ArabLit Story Prize on March 15, this time with help from Submittable.

*Do more to expand coverage of Arabic translations into non-English languages.

*Expand the Bulaq podcast.

If you aren't comfortable with Patreon, there are other ways to help.
