Bókadeild Føroya Lærarafelags, BFL for short, is the Faroese Teachers’ Association’s Publishing Company and specializes in children’s and youth literature.
BFL was founded in 1956 and has a literature board, a managing director and staff.
We publish around 80 books a year. In addition to editing our own publications, we also sometimes edit and manage printing for others. We then take care of the whole process through to printing, in cooperation with the publisher, naturally. In most cases this means managing layout, proofing, images and printing.
Every year BFL joins the international book fairs in Bologna and Frankfurt am Main. We participate to make sure that we keep up to speed with the most recent developments on the book market and new trends in children’s and youth literature. They are also great opportunities for us to raise our profile as publishers and showcase the work of Faroese authors and illustrators.
BFL often cooperates with partners about special publications, such as a series of easy reading books published with The Faroese School Book Fund. We also frequently join efforts with other Nordic publishing companies to launch special publications.
