NORLA invites foreign publishers, editors, sub-agents and scouts to apply for our fellowship program at the Norwegian Festival of Literature in Lillehammer, 31 May – 2 June 2022. This year marks the physical opening of the newly established rights centre Lillehammer Rights at Scandic Victoria Hotel, where all fellows will get a table. The rights centre is a collaboration with the Norwegian Festival of Literature in Lillehammer. Additionally, we continue with the popular seminar where you will be introduced to New Voices from Norway. This year, participants of all genres and languages are welcome to apply.

Lillehammer Rights is organised by NORLA in collaboration with the Norwegian Festival of Literature in Lillehammer. The project is supported financially by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The festival has a British focus this year, and the entire program is 30 May – 5 June. Nobel Prize winner Abdulrazak Gurnah has already confirmed his participation, as have Ali Smith, Deborah Levy, Jack Meggitt Phillips, Natasha Brown and Sathnam Sanghera.

The World Expression Forum will take place in Lillehammer during the same time as the festival. If relevant, we will try to incorporate some of their program into ours. More on the WEXFO here.
