قمتِ بتوقيع روايتك هاجس مع دار كيان للنشر والتوزيع فى معرض القاهرة الدولى للكتاب 2014 يوم السبت الموافق 1 فبراير، كيف كانت تجربة زيارتك المعرض لأول مرة ككاتبة؟

تجربة مختلفة تماماً، لم يعد المعرض مجرد مكتبة كبيرة بالنسبة لي، أصبح أشبه بالمهرجان بفعاليات لا تنتهي، كنت محظوظة لارتيادي له هذا العام ككاتبة؛ حيث شرفت بلقاء العديد من الكتاب والقراء والتعرف إليهم بشكل أكبر، وهذه بلا شك إضافة رائعة بالنسبة لي

هل حضر عدد كبير حفل التوقيع؟

شرفني فعلاً بالحضور عدد كبير من الزملاء والأساتذة الكتاب ومجموعة رائعة من القراء، بخلاف صديقاتي العزيزات وأسرتي الجميلة

هناك اجتمعت مع الكتاب الآخرين من داركيان للنشر والتوزيع أيضا. مَن  مِن الزملاء الآخرين تقترحين على القرّاء القراءة لهم؟ ولم؟

سعدت بالتعرف على زملائي من الكتاب من دار كيان للنشر والتوزيع، وأنصح القراء بتجربة أقلامهم كلهم، فالواحد منهم لا يختلف عن الآخر فى تميز ورقى كتابته؛ دار كيان تعتني جيداً باختيار إصداراتها  Lee el resto de esta entrada

Yasmine Thabet (ياسمين ثابت)

¿Qué importancia tiene la Literatura en su vida?
Al principio escribía como una forma de expresarme hasta que se convirtió en mi sello de identidad y en lo que soy. No puedo ser Yasmine sin escribir, porque solo siento mi presencia y esencia sobre mi pluma.

Su novela آشيا  es una historia real de una niña medio siria y medio estadounidense que vivió una infancia desgraciada entre su padre, un feroz corrupto, y su paciente madre. ¿Por qué decidió plasmar esta historia en papel?
Una amiga escribió آشيا  para mí, porque la conocí en las redes sociales en Internet, conversamos y me contó una extraordinaria historia que me impresionó. Como pudo vivir una niña de 21 años tantas circunstancias adversas. La historia de su vida era increíble y era necesario que la gente la conociese. También llegamos al acuerdo de que leyese la novela sobre su historia una vez escrita. Lee el resto de esta entrada

مامدى اهمية الكتابة الأدب في حياتك؟

في البداية كانت الكتابة الادبية بالنسبة لي وسيلة للتعبير عنى حتى صارت بالوقت هويتي وما أنا عليه…لا استطيع ان اكون ياسمين دون ان اكتب ولا أن اشعر بوجودي وتأثيري إلا عن طريق قلمي…

آشياهي قصة حقيقية لفتاة نصف سورية ونصف امريكية عاشت طفولة بائسة بين أب شرس فاسد وأم صابرةلأجلهم. لماذا قرّرت التحدّث عنها؟

آشيا كانت صديقة لي تعرفت عليها عن طريق شبكة الانترنت ودار بيننا حديث جعلها تحكي لي عن قصة حياتها الإستثنائية لدرجة جعلتني انبهر…كيف يمكن ان تعيش صاحبة الواحد وعشرون عاما احداثا نادرا ان تحصل لانسان واحد على مدار سبعين عاماً…قصة حياتها كانت مذهلة وكان لابد ان تصل للناس .كذلك كتبتها بناءا على طلبها مني بعد ما قرأت رواية لي بأن اكتب حكايتها… Lee el resto de esta entrada

When did you start writing? Do does it come from family?
I remember writing essays in English that were about 8 pages long once, while in school, and from then on, my English teacher asked me not to write more than 4 pages! I always loved words. Being in boarding school since I was 9 years old, I would often write to my sister and parents, and they were lengthy letters describing my stay in school. That’s when my passion for writing and for English kicked in. However, I don’t take it too seriously – I write it to express myself, and to get thoughts out of my head.

On your way to write, do you have any style when you write?
I write whatever comes to my head really. Often when I am almost close to a deadline, I will produce my best pieces. Other times, a conversation will trigger thought and I’ll rush and write before the idea disappears from my thoughts. I think I should be more disciplined about it but I’m not.

The use of New Media in general and blogs in particular is very important, especially for the young and young-at-heart in Nigeria and Nigerians in the diaspora. Port Harcourt being named the World Book Capital in 2014 is a very welcome development

When did you start writing?
I have been writing bits and pieces of stories, poems and songs since I was in secondary school and have never stopped since then. I began to take it more seriously very recently after a smart man wrote an article that seemed to speak directly to me. Lee el resto de esta entrada

Ahmed El Fiky, an Egyptian writer who display us his first book ‘Operation 9/11’

Operation 9/11 is spans from the months leading up to the attacks on September 11, 2001 in the United States until the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the novel will be released soon in Egypt in English first then it will be translated to Arabic

Alberto Berenguer

Ahmed El Fiky was born on the 3rd of February, 1988, so he is 24 years old. He has been born and raised in Maadi, Cairo. He was graduated from Victory collage language school, graduated as well from Cairo University. He is addicted to writing, reading and researching. He is a big fan of Architecture and arts in general as well. After 10 years He wants to be holding a Phd in Islamic studies and Philosophy. His first book is Operation 9/11.

The beginnings of a writer are fundamental to the development of his later works, when did you begin to write stories?
This may surprise you as I actually started writing while I was in university. Before that I used to created stories in my mind without putting them on papers. So you can say Operation 9/11 is my real first attempt to write.

Many writers acknowledge that they currently write their stories on computer because it greatly facilitates the work. However, others say that they continue writing on paper. In that place are you?
I am the first kind. My laptop is my friend always. It facilitates the process very much, yet I write the main Ideas of the book in a piece of paper before writing on the Laptop.

Your first book is entitled Operation 9/11 classified in the kind of fiction and historical, how was the process of documentation of the novel?
The process was quite hard. I started researching and writing in 2009. This means it took 3 years from me to complete the novel. I had to research 3 different topics: 9/11 attacks, the war on Iraq & Freemasonry. It was quite hard but had to be very accurate and honest in order not to help in deluding others.

Your novel Operation 9/11 is spans from the months leading up to the attacks on September 11, 2001 in the United States until the invasion of Iraq in 2003, why have you chosen this period?
Actually 9/11 was described as the day which changed the world. This event is the most important event in our century. In my opinion as well it led to the war on Iraq, by another word it was a step in the plan. Don’t be surprised when you know that George Bush asked Richard Clarke to find a link between Iraq and the attacks. Anyway I believe the world became a small village and what happens in a continent affects the other continents. This is my first reason. The second reason is that this issue concerns me as a Muslim and as an Arab. You can’t imagine how these attacks affected every Muslim and every Arab, so I felt responsible for making what happened clear to others by investigating it. Lee el resto de esta entrada
