The publishing house
Goga Publishing, established in 1998, has published more than 225 titles, focused primarily on literary fiction. Upholding the highest editorial standards, Goga has maintained the reputation of a trustworthy publisher with authors and readers alike. Goga’s program consists mostly of contemporary novels (both Slovene and in translation), but also includes poetry, short prose, and essays. Among Goga’s authors are many of Slovenia’s most esteemed, awarded, and translated writers.
Eager to expand and develop a strong international presence, Goga hasrecently been either the leader of or a partner in several European projects, including Reading Balkans (networking and mobility in the Balkans) and Cela (talent development for emerging authors).
Goga maintains a broad network of international partners, including publishers, translators, authors, editors, writers’ residencies, and other cultural organizations, always interested in forming new partnerships for international cooperation, possibly withing the framework of individual projects. Contact us if you have a proposal for a specific partnership.
