The late Khaled Khalifa was a multifaceted Syrian artist, known as a novelist, screenwriter, and poet. His literary achievements include three nominations and two shortlistings for the International Prize for Arabic Fiction. His works frequently carried critical perspectives on the Syrian Baathist government, leading to their prohibition within the country.

He was actively involved in the establishment of Aleph magazine alongside a group of fellow writers and poets.
