Funding by the Danish Arts Foundation: Facts 2015

The Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Literature provides grants for every stage of book production abroad, starting with sample translations of extracts to give publishers a sense of the work and encourage them to buy it. Having acquired the rights, funding is available for a full translation. Funds are then available for marketing the book abroad and for the author to travel and promote itGrants are even available for research trips to Denmark to get to know the Danish literary scene better.
