In order to increase the visibility of authors from Slovenia, Croatia and North Macedonia in Europe and beyond, we will organize publishers meetings, focusing on selling rights and visiting international book fairs. The project includes a strategy to reach a larger readership and raise the awareness of the diversity of our common European culture among readers.
With the project, especially Reading train activity, we would like to attract more online readers and subscribers to RSE boxes and increase our audience. An important role at events will be played by authors (9 author tours) and translators (6 special evenings) who will introduce their work to a wider public. Within 35 months, 5 publishing teams, 20 authors, 14 illustrators, 21 translators, 5 editors, 4 designers, 12 members of the project teams, 4 distributors, one literary agent, 14 foreign editors who will take part in networking, will contribute to a successful implementation of the project. A total of 95 professionals.
