The 2022 International Publishing Fellowship, part of India/UK Together, a Season of Culture, evolved from the findings of the ‘India Publishing and Literature Sector Study’ conducted by the Art X Company and released in December 2021.
The Fellowship is a peer-to-peer mentoring and professional development programme where publishers from the UK will be matched with publishers of similar career stage and publishing interests from India. It will be a year-long programme consisting of reciprocal study trips, featuring masterclasses, networking opportunities and professional updating.
The Fellows, who were selected via open-call application, all demonstrate a commitment to innovation and internationalism in publishing. They work across a range of genres including education for sustainable development, climate change, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, essays; in roles including editorial, translations, design and production, for large conglomerate publishers and boutique independent presses and bookstore.
