The Basque Publishers Association has joined the LIT-UP project to promote European literature in minority and minoritized languages in national and international markets in order to build a permanent international network.
The project partners, under the leadership of the Associació d ‘Editors del Pais Valencià, are, AFUK (Friesland), Malinc (Slovenia), Il Leone Verde (Italy), Krokodil (Serbia), Acentoline Comunicación (Granada), Goga (Slovenia) and the Association of Basque Publishers (Euskal Herria).
The presentation took place in October 2022 at the Frankfurt Book Fair, but the first working meeting was held in Valencia, at the end of October, in the context of the Plaça del Lilbre in Valencia.
At the Valencia fair, workshops and training courses were organized for the participating publishers, for the publishers’ associations and we noted, once again, the need to create a European network for book promotion entities.
Looking ahead to 2023, we will carry out numerous activities together, we will attend the Turin Book Fair, we will participate in the Leeuwarden Literary Festival in Friesland, and we will be at the Babakamo comic fair in Valencia.
The LIT-UP project will last until the beginning of 2025. It is part of the Creative Europe program and is therefore supported by the European Union.
