The Sharjah International Literary Agency (SILA) has signed 120 agreements with authors and publishers during the Sharjah Book Authority’s (SBA) participation at the 20th edition of the Amman International Book Fair which concluded recently in the Jordanian capital.

The first-of-its-kind literary agency in the UAE and the region, SILA was launched in October 2020 by SBA to facilitate communication among publishers, authors, translators and creatives, and regulate their operations in line with prevailing official frameworks.

With the signing of the new agreements, SILA will step up efforts to safeguard the intellectual property rights of publishers and writers alike are protected, in addition to stimulating the Arabic publishing market, while also promoting Arabic literary and cultural content globally.
