Endelig kollasj talenter

The first group of participants chosen for NORLA’s development programme for new literary talents – “New Voices” – has been decided. The four names are:
Simen Ekern, Sigbjørn Mostue, Roskva Koritzinsky and Nils Henrik Smith.

NORLA’s development programme for new literary talents is a part of the project of Norway as Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2019. Cultivating new literary voices internationally is an important part of the endeavour. The development programme has been established in collaboration with Talent Norge and the Norwegian Publishers Association.
In the years leading up to 2019 a number of writers will have the opportunity to participate in a development programme that focuses on the international dimensions of the writing profession. The programme is for writers from all genres, fiction, non-fiction, and literature for children and young people.
