The JIBF is Proud to Announce

the 2017 Zev Birger Fellows

The Zev Birger Fellowship program, sponsored by the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, is a professional week-long seminar which deals with significant issues of interest to the international world of publishing. The fellowship program has existed since 1985 as part of the JIBF. Around 35 editors, literary agents and literary scouts are accepted to the program.

Since its conception nearly 500 professionals participated in the program. Many of whom have moved up in the world of publishing and the JIBF is still a focal point for their professional relationships and friendships. See the alumni list.
