The Norwegian embassy in Copenhagen, the Norwegian Publishers Association and NORLA continue their collaboration on initiatives to promote Norwegian literature in Denmark. An exclusive mini-seminar is being arranged on 9 February for Danish publishers, dedicated to Norwegian fiction. Critic and translator Margunn Vikingstad will give an orientation on Norwegian contemporary literature. The authors Hilde K. Kvalvaag (current with Lev vel, alle, (Have a Good Life) Samlaget, 2015) and Johan Harstad (current with Max, Mischa & Tet-offensiven, (Max, Mischa and the Tet Offensive) Gyldendal 2015) will present themselves and their writing.

The participants will also have the opportunity to meet Norwegian literary agents.

See the covers of Norwegian books published in Denmark through translation subsidies from the Nordic Council of Ministers or NORLA (since 2011) here.

Books from Norway provides you with English-language information about all genres of Norwegian literature. The information is provided by the rightsholders and NORLA.
