Online application platform launched
Flanders Literature has updated its grant application procedure. From now on, applications should be submitted through the online portal My Flanders Literature.
We have also updated our grant guidelines. These are the most important changes:
- From now on, there are only two types of grants: translation grants and travel grants. Translation grants now cover all different genres, including drama, illustrated books and poetry. For illustrated books and poetry, financial support for the production costs is still part of the grant.
- The applicable percentages for the calculation for illustrated books were lowered. Financial assistance is now provided to cover up to 60% of the translator’s fee for publishers from economically strong countries (80% for publishers from economically weak countries).
