IBBY-Yamada 2018: Armenia

IBBY Armenia: Creating books for children and young adults - workshop for publishers

Following on similar reading promotion projects for children’s book writers, illustrators, translators and librarians, IBBY Armenia held a three-day workshop led by the German publishing expert, Florian Andrews, for 10 Armenian publishers. The aim was to share the success of modern German children's publishing houses with Armenian publishers. The goal for the publishers would be to create sufficient, rich and interactive content to meet children's ever-changing demands and to attract children to reading in a multi-media world. 

The workshop took place from 1-3 May 2018 and enabled the participants to learn new approaches and ideas and gain new skills in publishing as well as to exchange experiences with an international expert.

A publication with the results of all five IBBY Armenia workshops held since 2015 is in preparation.
