2 Seas Agency’s International Publishing Fellowships Listing

2 Seas Agency’s International Publishing Fellowships Listing

* Please note that the below overview of publishing fellowships was established during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many dates may not apply at the time of writing nor for the foreseeable future *

By Nikoleta Koukmisi & Chrysothemis Armefti — Article first published in May 2020

Are you an international publishing professional interested in participating in publishing fellowships while traveling the world? Check out 2 Seas Agency’s listing below!

Publishing fellowships are a great way to develop relationships within the international publishing community, facilitate rights sales and bring books to an international audience.

Participants of such publishing fellowships get the chance to develop a new perspective on different book markets, understand local trends, discover new authors for their program and/or sell rights to their books. These events constitute an incredible learning experience, are highly enriching both on a professional and a personal level, and help bring people together from around the world to build those important personal bonds that are essential for the publishing industry.

2 Seas Agency has created a list of some international publishing fellowships, offering an insight on each program that industry professionals can discover and may be interested in applying for.

You’ll notice that most fellowships are open only to editors and not agents — the goal of publishing fellowships in general is to promote their local literature abroad, rather than the other way around. This is a recurring topic, for instance during this recent presentation of international fellowships organized by the Facebook group Publishers Without Borders. Be that as it may, any initiative to bring international publishing professionals together is a good one if you ask us!

The information below is subject to change, and this current Publishing Fellowships listing is probably far from complete. Much like our Translation Grants Listing and International Book Fair Calendar, this is a work in progress. Please contact us if you know of a publishing fellowship that isn’t part of the list and/or if you have additional information!
