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.
The grant covers up to 50% of eligible costs of book production including: printing, graphic design, editing and more.
TWO STREAMS OF INVESTMENT
Publishers must apply to the appropriate grant stream based on their publishing activity during the two years preceding the date of application. For more information on how to determine your streamclick here.
"Three or More" Stream:
for established corporations or individuals who are publishing three or more books each year. Applications are not juried. They are evaluated based on the applicant's track record of commercial success. No applicant may receive more than $125,000 per fiscal year. Applications are processed on a first-come first-served basis until available funds are fully invested.
"Fewer Than Three" Stream:
for applicants publishing fewer than three books per year. A jury of publishing experts will assess each application for commercial viability. No applicant may receive more than $15,000 per fiscal year (with the exception of projects involving illustration or photography, see guidelines for details). Results will be delivered to applicants within 10 weeks of the posted application deadline.
If an author covers any portion of the costs of production in either stream, the author must be the grant applicant.
