Frankfurt Fellowship!

Karadi Tales is delighted to announce that our Commissioning Editor, Manasi Subramaniam, has been chosen for the  prestigious Frankfurt Fellowship Programme. Chosen from applicants from all over the world, she will be a part of a programme  that focuses on information exchange, professional dialogue and the creation of networks between international publishers. The Programme provides an insight into the German book world and brings the Fellows to important centres of German publishing. Publishing professionals provide an overview of the German book market and pass their international career experiences on to the Fellows. 

The Fellowship group (approximately 15 persons) includes people from all parts of the world, and in the 2 weeks spent together, the fellows learn about each participant's market and gain from each other’s experience. The Fellowship begins culminates with the Frankfurt Book Fair.

This is really fantastic news  for Karadi Tales because not only have we been a part of Frankfurt’s Invitation Programme, now this is an additional testimony that we are a very serious consideration in the international book business.
