About Us

Raff Publishing is igniting the Arab world’s passion for reading and amplifying authors’ voices on the world stage.

Our goal is to enhance the quality and quantity of books available to the 400 million Arabic-speakers and readers around the world. Raff believes in ensuring the culture, history and dynamism of the region is championed. We will highlight stories and voices from the region and work with emerging and existing authors to create this new and exciting content.

Additionally, through our translations, Raff will bring the best global literary works to Arabic readers.

Raff aims to lead the MENA publishing sector with high quality editorial, first rate translators and content that engages and appeals to a diverse and contemporary audience. Our team of creatives and industry veterans make sure that each original work brings out the truest voice of its author.

A general-interest trade publisher, Raff - which means “shelf” in Arabic - publishes Arabic- and English-language books for adults and children across all genres and in a variety of print, digital and audio formats. We are a subsidiary of The Saudi Research and Media Group, the Middle East’s largest media group.
