Further Information

Ós Pressan is a non-profit initiative designed to support and promote new authors, to create an inclusive writing community and to challenge the reality of the publishing industry in Iceland. In February 2017, Ós Pressan started a call for submissions for the second journal, after having already published a multilingual journal in November 2016. Both emerging and established writers were invited to submit works in any language.

We have selected 30 authors and Ós journal N. 2 will have 144 pages, featuring works of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction in multiple languages and will be distributed amongst authors, cultural institutions, and libraries around Iceland.

In the ongoing social change in Iceland, where over 10% of the population was born in another country, we identified a tremendous gap between the current social reality and the literary-publishing scene. The absence of representation of foreign-born writers brought us to a wider and more inclusive idea: the margins of the Icelandic society and literature, the voices that are not being heard. We want to explore this area, bring out and promote new authors, offer them the opportunity to be heard and create a community addressing this social and cultural change and is therefore dedicated to gathering writers from the margins of Icelandic society and bringing them into Iceland’s rich literary scene.

In addition to the publication of the journal, we will hold several events, including a launch and readings, in which voices from the journal will perform in multiple languages, offering a theatrical, performative version of what the journal contains in written form. This event, such as the writing workshops and readings organized by Ós Pressan, also contributes to creating a community for exchanging ideas and connecting.

Your donation will be used to cover the production costs of journal N. 2. This includes layout/design and printing. As a non-profit initiative, we aim to include as many voices as possible in our journal. Your support will ensure that these voices are heard in Iceland and beyond. Thank you.
