Danish Literature Centre

The Danish Literature Centre promotes familiarity with Danish literature nationally and internationally. It is part of the Danish Arts Agency and provides administrative services to the Danish Arts Council’s Committee for Literature. It administers a number of subsidy pools for international purposes. The Literature Centre also organises literary exchanges between Denmark and other countries.

The centre supports the promotion of Danish literature abroad (through publications, presence at book fairs, information on website), and provides translation subsidies for Danish and foreign publishers worth up to 100% of translator’s fees and travel grants for authors and translators from Danish.
