El Guindi's award-winning productions include “The Talented Ones,” “Our Enemies: Lively Scenes of Love and Combat” and “An Evening with Activists.” He is the recipient of the 2010 Middle East America Distinguished Playwright Award and The Stranger’s Genius Award for literature in 2015. He was selected as the recipient of the 2018 Maxine Cushing Gray Visiting Writers Fellowship Award, honoring a Northwest writer of notable achievement.

The Maxine Cushing Gray Award was established in 1985 at The Seattle Foundation by friends and admirers of the late Maxine Cushing Gray, who sought to honor her contributions to journalism and her tireless work to recognize and encourage excellence in writing. In 2004, the award fund was moved to the UW Libraries.
