Ukrainian Literature: Rights On!
Ukrainian Literature: Rights On! is designed to stimulate translations of Ukrainian books and provide effective instruments to promote national literature abroad to publishers from Ukraine.
The first component is the educational programme. Ukrainian publishers learn about attractive foreign markets, while literary agents from all over the world get to know Ukrainian fiction and children’s literature. Afterwards there are B2B meetings, offering the opportunity to negotiate the sale and purchase of classics and contemporary bestsellers.
In 2020, the programme included 147 online meetings between Ukrainian and foreign publishers from 24 countries of the world. This has become a record for all the years of Ukraine's independence, and this year the team is going to surpass these results.

This is for Ukrainian publishers who dream that books from their catalogue of rights will be published all over the world
Ukrainian publishers will learn about effective literature promotion and sales instruments in lectures and workshops with top experts and negotiate the real deals in B2B meetings with foreign organisations. Your catalogue of rights will be promoted through our rich contact lists, mailed to 60 embassies of Ukraine in other countries, and published on the web pages of Chytomo’s special project and the Book Arsenal.
This is for foreign publishers who wish to amplify their portfolio with uncharted Ukrainian literature
Foreign publishers will watch the lectures about the Ukrainian book market and purchase the rights for fictions that caught their attention in B2B meetings. We will consult you on grants, prizes, festivals, fairs and the publishing industry in Ukraine.
This is for you!
We are all over Ukraine
