Polish Book Market
Seminars for publishers
We invite a group (usually around 25) of publishers from various countries to Kraków for 2-3 days outside of the busy season of fairs, to present to them Polish literary selection, enable them to meet writers, local publishers and critics, and in this way encourage them to publish Polish literature.
