Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing

Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing (BQFP) is a joint venture owned by the Qatar Foundation and managed by Bloomsbury Publishing. Established in October 2008 and headquartered in Doha, BQFP is Qatar's first publishing house. It consists of two departments: Publishing, and Reading and Writing Development.


BQFP publishes a wide range of fiction, non-fiction, reference material, and children’s literature in both Arabic and English. A significant portion of its projects involve translating well-known works of Arabic into English and vice versa. These include children’s books like The Gruffalo and fiction like the up-coming The American Granddaughter by Inaam Kachachi, which has been translated from Arabic into English.[1]

Notable books

  • Qatari Voices, a collection of essays by young Qataris.[2]
