Khaled Khalifa was born in 1964, in a village close to Aleppo, Syria. He is the fifth child of a family of thirteen siblings.

He obtains a Bachelor degree of law and actively participates to the foundation of Aleph, a magazine, with a group of writers and poets. A few months later, the magazine was forbidden by the Syrian censorship.
