The Conclusion of Literature Go Global

On Friday 25 September, the export program Literature Go Global will come to an end with a scaled-down closing conference for the program’s participating companies.

Five international speakers will take part digitally with keynotes: Isobel Dixon from Blake Friedmann Literary Agency (UK); Yasmina Jraissati from RAYA, the Agency for Arabic Literature (FR / LB); Patrick Walsh from PEW Literary (UK); Linda Altrov Berg from Norstedts Agency (SE); and Rebecca Servadio from London Literary Scouting (UK). The seven participating companies will be present at Sentralen in Oslo.

The keynotes are now available on NORLA’s YouTube-channel. Watch them here

The conference marks the end of a two-year export program for Norwegian literary agencies. Since it began in June 2018, the participating companies have received project funding and also taken part in a broad competence program, the highlight of this being the workshop in New York in January 2019. The program has also included open events for the Norwegian book industry.

The program has been a collaboration between NORLA, Innovation Norway and the Ministry of Culture, and is part of the government’s commitment to the creative and cultural industries.
