We’re looking for stories that offer interesting and intriguing perspectives that can both inform and delight. We’re also interested in receiving original essays, editorials and contributions to consider for publication.

In the past we’ve covered new company launches, executive profiles, translation initiatives, rights an agents, country and regional overviews, digital startups, anniversary celebrations, information sessions and panels, and more. This year we’re offering additional coverage of rights sales, storytelling innovation, education, self-publishing, children’s publishing, and more.

Inside our pages, you will also find event listings at the Fair, news and interviews, as well as special supplements from our international publishing partners.

So if you attending to the Frankfurt Book Fair and have a story to tell or want to contribute an editorial on a publishing issue you’re passionate about, let us know.
