Abstract/Description

In this paper, I seek to explore the role of novelists and poets at the beginning of Saudi media history especially from 1924 to 1960. Most of the newspapers were published in the western region because that region is close to Egypt and controlled by ottoman empire so that people could print easily (Alqashaami, 2008). Printers were not available enough in Saudi at that time. This level called an individual level because everyone was able to establish his newspaper (Alqashaami, 2008). Then, novelists and poets started to create the newspaper to publish the literature work as a primary aim of the newspaper. Therefore, the paper will study the newspapers at that level and discuss how those people could write and edit the news while they were poets and novelists rather than journalists. And generally what are impacts of poets and novelists being on Saudi newspapers.
