Our first Editors’ Week in Stockholm

From the 16th to the 19th of May the Swedish Arts Council and Swedish Literature Exchange invited six international publishers to Stockholm to take part in our first ever Editors’ Week.

On the program were talks about Swedish literature and our publishing marketplace, as well as visits with the Swedish Academy and to the former home of Astrid Lindgren, now a museum.

There was also time to mingle with agents and publishers and have dinner with representatives from the Gothenburg book fair and the ‘Internationell Författarscen’ [International Writers’ Platform] at Kulturhuset in Stockholm. The participants earmarked a lot of time to meet with Swedish publishers, agents and authors and greatly appreciated the chance to swap experiences.

Our plan is to organize a yearly Editors’ Week in the future.
