About Editorial l'Aleph
Editorial L’Aleph was founded in 2006 with the aim at publishing primarily works of trans-national writers in different world languages without boarders. L’Aleph was inaugurated in cooperation with the Else-Lasker Schüler Society and the Exil-Archiv based in Wuppertal with a strong commitment to writers’ empowerment.
L’Aleph is an imprint of Wisehouse Publishing, a publishing house based in Sweden and acknowledged by the National Library of Sweden / Swenska ISBN Centralen / ISBN/ISMN assigned: 86131.

L’Aleph publishes and distributes globally.
L’Aleph follows a strong editorial program. The editorial board caters and cares for our authors. We involve the writers not only with their own works but also as reviewers and editors on other authors’ works.
From its early days L’Aleph has also established a strategic anticensorship plan, which enables to develop and implement innovative tools, technologies and tactics to eliminate direct and indirect censorship by governments or other societal forces in order to ensure almost worldwide distribution and readership as well as maintaining liberty of expression and the security of our writers. Our list emphasises the value of forbidden or censorable fiction and non-fiction. The range of titles and our exceptional mode of distribution clearly demonstrate our love for liberty and freedom of expression.
Furthermore the Wisehouse platform ensures the economic independency of l’Aleph and helps to establish a vital environment for writers.
We aim at strengthening our forces by inviting established writers to join us, as well as discovering new talents and reaching more isolated and off-shore readers.
