The Icelandic Literature Center (Miðstöð íslenskra bókmennta) has a fund available to foreign publishers wishing to publish a work translated from Icelandic. Applications for support can only be made after the applicant has acquired the rights to the work and signed a contract with the translator. The Icelandic Literature Center cannot grant support to a translation published before the deadline for which the application is submitted. The aim of the fund is to promote Icelandic literature abroad. Grants are available for literary works (prose, poetry and drama), non-fiction of general interest (including essays and biographies), comic books and children’s books.
Application deadlines: 15 February 2015 and 15 September 2015.
