Newly translated literature from Flanders

Flanders Literature supports the literary sector at home and abroad.  Our translation grants are one of the strongest tools we can use to put our books on the world map. Whether they discovered a book during a book fair, or through one of our fellowships, international publishers can apply for our grants and help us bring our literature to new readers across the globe.

Publishers who receive grants send us physical copies of the publication. These get a place in our translation library and archive, but before they reach their place, all colleagues can see the realizations at our bi-weekly team meeting.

These are (some of) the books we received in our offices in June 2024:
