GRANT OVERVIEW

This grant helps Saskatchewan's publishing entrepreneurs cover production costs of commercially viable books. To successfully claim this grant, applicants will either present a solid track record of commercial publishing success or, for less established applicants, convince a jury of the commercial viability of a particular book.

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE

To provide publishers with improved access to this grant while facing financial pressures associated with COVID-19:

  • a restriction on the number of “reprint titles” has been temporarily removed

  • a restriction that prevented applicants from including both an administration fee and in-house expenses in their project budget has been temporarily removed 

OUR INVESTMENT

The grant covers up to 50% of eligible costs of book production including: printing, graphic design, editing and more.
