The Riveter is a free magazine devoted to European literature, designed to make international writing popular and accessible to readers, to encourage book sales, and to celebrate excellent translation and fine literature in all its forms.
The Riveter was launched in 2017, and with a wide range of publishers, authors, translators, critics and academics involved in its content, it has achieved great acclaim with its special issues on Polish, Russian, Norwegian and Baltic literature in English.
Its funding method is similar to crowd-sourcing: there is no single sponsor, the editorial team relies on support from the various stakeholders from the countries and cultures being profiled, and, where appropriate, money from their grants from ACE and Creative Europe. The magazine is distributed for free to bookshops, libraries and other organisations, and at events across the UK and Europe.
The latest issue focuses on the Baltic countries, which were the market focus at this year’s London Book Fair.
