Open applications for this year’s fellowship in Slovenia - foreign publishers, editors, journalists invited for a late-August get together

In the perspective of our Guest of Honour appearances at the Bologna Children's Book Fair in 2021 and at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2022, the Slovenian Book Agency organizes yearly study-journeys for foreign publishers since 2015 in order to enhance the translational potential of Slovenian literature.


This year’s fellowship will take place between 21-24/25 August and will host up to 10 international publishers and editors of fiction and non-fiction as well as journalists covering cultural topics and literary event managers/festival organizers.


During the fellowship participants will have the opportunity to meet various translators from Slovenian into foreign languages, who will be taking part in the translation seminar in Maribor (21-24 August), visit a networking event with Slovenian publishers, learn about financing opportunities for publishers of Slovenian literature abroad and enjoy day trips to relevant destinations and events in Slovenia, such as the international Days of Poetry and Wine Festival in Ptuj (21-24 August).

If you would like to join, please read the attached details and send us the filled-in application form by May 15th to anja.kovac(at)jakrs.si.
