Message from the director

Reading is an art; Writing is an art; and so is Publishing.

It becomes a tragedy when modern human do not appreciate the white sheet, the fruit of pain from cutting a tree, which silently and freely submits itself to the human mind. This sheet deserves candid respect and not the violence inflicted upon it by contemporary people. It is a valued partner for the human intellect and imagination, which contributes greatly to achieving universal benefit instead of succumbing to the limits of personal interest.

Until the end of the last century, both reading and writing were the uncontested realms of paper.

It allows us to fill the gaps that life imposes on us sometimes and makes possible what seems or is impossible. It creates opportunities for us to reflect on issues and events in an artistic way. Writers are among the artists of life; they embody the essence of thoughts and paint reality with emotions and with the colors of their souls.

Publishing a book is comparable to starting a new friendship. One has to invest the time to do it properly. Thus, the Publishing House was intended to encourage encounters among people, to respond to the greatest need of the writers, and to help them communicate their richness and to expose it on the most daring ground of publication.

The Publishing House is based on its major pillars of competence, openness, study, and dialogue. It sets the foundations for future decisions and further developments to those who have adequate tools to write by profession. It is a project of permanent analogy, a cultural platform with the highest aspiration of identifying and setting publishing guidelines for our time.

In this historical and critical moment, an extremely complex time to understand the direction in which contemporary society is moving, the Publishing House aim is to provide a voice
