The Arab Review is an independent online journal exploring the contemporary Middle East through the culture and art of its people. So much of the coverage of the Arab world is shaped by current affairs and political controversy, often sensationalised by western media outlets.

The Arab Review offers an alternative narrative to that of the mainstream media; a narrative written and voiced by the people who live it.

The Arab Review is a serious publication seeking to open the debate on the Arab world through informed commentary and analysis, in the style of the London Review of Books and the Times Literary Supplement.

We accept written submissions of reviews and essays about the Middle East, up to a maximum of 1,000 words.

Contact editors[at]thearabreview[dot]org for more information. Our full submission guidelines can be found here.
