We blog to tell our story
Forward Magazine – FW: – is Syria’s leading English monthly, run by a team of forward-looking, young professionals who hail from so many different walks of life. Published by Haykal Media, we aspire to reflect the new face of Syria, where new cultures of business and entrepreneurship are emerging, and new trends are finding their way into our lives. Young Syrians are changing the way we see and experience our life in motherland Syria; those are our heroes, our authors and for the most part, our readers.
We blog to move our dreams forward
Our offices nestle in the district where the old city of Damascus dwells; that’s where we meet on a daily basis to exchange ideas about articles we want to write, people we want to meet and ideas we want to express. In this blog space we hope to engage ourselves in interesting chats with our readers, whether they are expats, homecommers, foreign residents, businessmen, university students or simply You.
We usually publish our feature stories in our official website (www.fw-magazine.com), but we will be posting stories from behind the scenes in this blog. We invite you to express, share and communicate your aspirations, thoughts and outlooks for Syria with us. And if we become friends, we’ll surely invite you over for a nice cup of bitter-sweet Syrian coffee, or maybe send you tickets to watch a Damascene dervish whirling at one of our city’s exquisite cultural events!
Sham and us…
Sham Sherif is the endearing nickname that people in Turkey like to use when they talk about Damascus. This holy city has endless spiritual stories to tell. It starts with a whirling dervish and ends with a rich spiritual scene that makes our Damascus one of the world’s lowest crime-rate cities. Sham is now home to an emerging media scene led by a vibrant youth. Our young authors will speak to you through this forum and hope to learn from you and your experience in Damascus and life in general.
