Flanders Literature creates awareness on literature from Flanders abroad. One of its activities is to award grants to publishers, translators and festival organisers.

Flanders Literature supports foreign publishers with translation grants in order to publish titles written by Flemish authors or illustrated by Flemish artists. Special conditions apply for drama, poetry and illustrated books (picture books and graphic novels).

Flanders Literature may also pay for travel costs incurred by authors travelling abroad to promote their translated works.
