In connection with the announcement of the Literature Go Global program an information meeting was held on April 19, for Norwegian literary agents and rights managers at NORLA.
Literature Go Global (Litteratur ut i verden) is an export and competence program for literary agents. It aims to contribute to increased Norwegian literature exports and strengthen the Norwegian agencies and the book industry’s competitive powers internationally. The program is a collaboration between the Ministry of Culture, Innovation Norway and NORLA.
Juergen Boos, director of the Frankfurt Book Fair, attended and presented the book fair as a venue for international rights trading. Afterwards Margit Klingen Daams, head of cultural and creative industry at Innovation Norway, presented the Literature Go Global program, and the application process.
There was a high attendance and good dialogue concerning the program after the presentation, and many interesting questions from the hall.
