Completed applications will be reviewed quarterly by a Memorandum Council (hereinafter – the Council) made up of representatives from various Latvian literary industries who will decide on the allocation of financial support, and provide written replies to the applicants.

The completed application along with the necessary attachments must be sent via e- mail to: info@latvianliterature.lv
