International Priorities

We are exploring translation possibilities and links with countries such as Latvia and India.

Key Strengths

We have a number of award listing and a reputation for quality. We are represented at the Bologna Children's Book Fair and are interested in pursuing translation possibilities and author links with international partners.

Seeking partnerships with

Children's publishers, distributors and literature promotion organisations.

Purpose of partnerships

We are potentially interested in publishing excellent children's literature from abroad, and in seeing our children's and YA titles and authors from Wales published and promoted in other countries and languages. This would go alongside author visits, events and reader development.
