Arevelk (in Armenian Արեւելք meaning Orient) was a widely circulated and read Armenian newspaper published and circulated throughout the Ottoman Empire.[1][2][3]

The newspaper was started by a collaboration of many Armenian writers including Arpiar Arpiarian.[1] It was a literary and political newspaper with democratic tendencies. It subsequently attracted numerous writers who would eventually form the core of the Armenian realism movement. The paper became a prestigious opinion maker and was published uninterruptedly until the Armenian genocide of 1915.[1]
