A crash course in Dutch literature
11 September 2013 - Alexis Washam
From Friday 6 September until Tuesday 10 September, the annual Amsterdam Fellowship for International Publishers took place for the sixth time. Ten representatives from internationally renowned publishing houses visited Amsterdam at the invitation of the Dutch Foundation for Literature and Jacqueline Smit, publisher at Orlando Publishers, in order to learn more about Dutch literature and publishing. Alexis Washam, senior editor at the Crown Publishing Group and Hogarth, reported for Boekblad about the people she met, the conversations she had and ‘an epic downpour’.
