The Book Publishing Production Grant has now been fully subscribed for the current fiscal year. Both streams of the grant are now closed.
The Book Publishing Production Grant was significantly revised in 2019 to better meet the needs of Saskatchewan's book publishing industry.
For the first time, publishers with established track records were able to secure grant approval based solely on previous commercial publishing success, and authors who covered costs of publishing their own books became eligible to apply. The response to the revisions was enthusiastic. More than 40 publishers and authors applied for the grant. Successful applicants secured investments totaling $250,000*.
Applicants who are currently on a waiting list for this grant will soon be contacted directly by Creative Saskatchewan. The availability of funding will be discussed at that time.
The grant is expected to reopen early in the new fiscal year which begins April 1, 2020.
