A professional Matchmaking
The fellowship offers a customized schedule of 30 minutes meetings with Catalan publishers and agents selected in accordance with the participant’s catalogues and their interests. The IRL will organize the meetings through the platform Zoom. Each participant will be able to meet around 30 Catalan agents and publishers and the meetings will be divided between two days: 14th and 15th September for Fiction and 16th and 17th for Non-Fiction and Children’s and YA Literature.
A virtual tour around Barcelona
The first day, Monday 13th, the program offers virtual meetings with the IRL staff, short capsules on Catalan literature, information about the Catalan literary publishing world and virtual visits to emblematic bookstores and to other outstanding cultural sites.
This year the IRL invites 30 international publishers to take part in one of the Llull Fellowship's customized programs focused on Literary Fiction, Non-Fiction, and children's books. To optimize their experience, the program includes both common activities and specific initiatives related to each focus of interest.
The fellowship runs along with the Books in Catalan Week in Barcelona. During these days, the publishers, bookstores and librarians take el Moll de la Fusta with literature as many talks, workshops and activities are scheduled to celebrate books in Catalan.
