We're changing the narrative for local and international literature professionals
The Sharjah International Literature Agency (SILA) is an initiative birthed by the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) that aims to advance the international careers of local authors, publishers, translators, agents and other industry-related professionals by promoting and trademarking literary rights.
As a representative of academics in literature across the Middle East, our suite of comprehensive services is geared towards paving the way towards new opportunities that currently don't exist within the region. SILA provides a platform for literary professionals to obtain the literary rights required to translate the copyrighted works of current authors, driving international recognition of published local literature.
As a vision of the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA), SILA endeavours to address the current shortfalls of literary agencies within the region, leveraging the awareness of the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) within the Middle East and beyond to drive opportunities for further success among local scholars and agents alike.
