Mentoring Program – France 2020-2021

The objective of the Mentoring Program – France 2020-2021 is to provide a group of eligible publishers export expertise to help them familiarize themselves with export activities into the French market (examination and evaluation of their export potential, promotional activities, distribution mechanisms). This program will allow eligible publishers to increase their export knowledge and properly evaluate the efforts needed to export their titles into this market.

This program is also offered to publishers of English-language books, but the events linked to this program will take place in French.

Program activities will include a webinar providing an overview of publishing in France, the sale of rights, and distribution in the French market (date in January to be determined); and a one-on-one online session with the consultants Mathias Echenay and Phi anh Nguyen of Axiales on the eligible publisher’s potential in this market.  Note that the webinar is open to all those who would like to attend and a recording will be made freely available afterwards.

Deadline for receipt of applications: January 29, 2021
