Nihad Sirees, Screenwriter & Novalist

The Silk MarketNihad Siress was born in the city of Aleppo (Halab) in 1950, Syria. His literary trends have arisen since childhood when he set out to write one-act plays to be presented on the school stage. He traveled to Bulgaria to study civil engineering and he got a master’s degree in 1976. He came back home to work as an engineer in his private office.

His actual and effective literary career has begun lately. He wrote a number of novels, plays, TV dramas and children dramas. He lives in Aleppo where he works and writes.

Nihad Sirees is considered one of the realistic writers in Syria in the eighties. His works clearly reflect the environment of Aleppo, and his characters belong to the middle class. He is considered one of the first writers in Syria who write the historical novel. His novel (The North Winds) has attracted the attention of both readers and critics. It is considered one of the most important historical novels in Syria.

His approach to the field of television-drama is considered remarkable in the widely known serial story of ‘The Silk Market', which presents the environment, culture and dialect of Aleppo for the first time in the history of the Syrian television-drama.

This television-serial has been welcomed by the Syrian and Arab viewers due to its reality, boldness and suspense. It is still being telecast on some satellite channels. Besides, it is available on videotapes in America, Canada and South America. Moreover, it has been translated into Persian and German.
