Ali Qadri, born in Galilee, is a Palestinian poet, translator, literary editor, and linguist. He works as a literary editor for Al-Ghad Al-Jadeed Cultural Magazine, which is published by the Al-Manar Association for Palestinian Culture and Identity. Through his two poetry collections (Diwans), Palestinian poet Ali Qadri introduces a new and bright conception of the concept of the language of poetry. Qadri has participated in many poetry writing workshops and literary evenings in Palestine. He is currently studying Arabic Language and Literature at the University of Haifa, and is preparing to write his doctoral thesis on Palestinian poetry.

When his soul left his body and this world, he left a house for poetry, a place for his things, and walls where the poetry he loved would remain. The Bahraini poet Ibrahim Al Arrayed, and all those who (followed) him in his literary journey and translated works, were retained by the Sheikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research in his city which he belonged, Manama. For it was the house of fame, as the first among the homes of cultural centers outside the city of Muharraq.
