The Icelandic Literature Center is a government-funded office, established 2013. The role of the Center is to raise awareness of Icelandic literature, both in Iceland and abroad, and to promote its distribution. Foreign publishers of Icelandic books can apply to the Icelandic Literature Center for translations subsidies. Authors, publishers and organizers of literary events can apply for support for Icelandic authors travelling abroad in order to promote their work. Furthermore, the Center supports the publication of Icelandic works of literature and the publication of literary works translated into Icelandic — as well as the advancement of literary culture in Iceland.
