2nd Call for AC/E Grants for Translation of Literary Works 2020

Open call from 6 October to 15 November 2020


The literary and professional programme that Spain has carried out at the Frankfurt Buchmesse from October 14 to 18 has offered during the 5 days of Fair, 13 live meetings with 27 hours of streaming programming, and more than 50 hours of content filming. All this has been offered in Spanish and English through this webpage. 


Spain will be the Guest Country of Honor at the 2022 Frankfurt Book Fair, a unique opportunity to present our culture and literature to the world. This participation is organized by Acci√≥n Cultural Espa√Īola (AC / E) and the General Directorate of Books (Ministry of Culture and Sports), in collaboration with the Federation of the Publishers Guild of Spain.

With the horizon of 2022, we intend to increase the translation of Spanish titles in Germany and create a renewed international interest in our literature, facilitating the presence of a wide range of Spanish authors at an international level, in addition to update and revitalize the contact between Spain and Germany through literary and cultural cooperation.

The literary programme is one of the priority axes of Spain for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 editions of the Buchmesse. To reinforce dissemination in all genres, during these previous editions, specific actions are being undertaken on poetry, dramaturgy, children and youth, scientific- technical, sale of rights for the audiovisual sector and the commemorations of anniversaries of literary figures.
