Siyahi, in Urdu means ‘ink’, the dye that stains the shape of our thoughts. We try our best to cherish and nurture the timeless magic of words.
At the heart of our work is an insatiable need to help stories reach out into the world.
We work hard to help authors for their manuscripts, not just to find the right publisher but also to help them edit their work to perfection before, and then help them promote their book after, it is published. We stand firm by our authors through it all.
Our portfolio goes beyond just literature and links together various aesthetic and artistic fields such as dance, cinema, music, textiles, et cetera. We have a special interest in regional works and are enthusiastically involved in facilitating translations of books to and from various languages.
We also create Literary events of all scales – from readings to international litfests – to draw crowds towards books and writers as we not only aim for higher sales figures but also to promulgate a healthy reading habit, especially amongst the youth.
