Najwa Kawar Farah

She has contributed throughout the years toward enriching the Arab literary movement.


Najwa Kawar Farah is a Palestinian woman born in 1923. She has contributed throughout the years toward enriching the Arab literary movement. She wrote numerous collections of short stories, plays, prose, and poetry. She was a public speaker and contributed to many Arab radio stations and to the BBC's Arabic service.
