Bonnier Rights Finland represents the authors and illustrators who work with the publishers that make up Bonnier Books Finland, a subsidiary of the international media house Bonnier. Bonnier Rights Finland also represents film rights on behalf of selected authors. Our worldwide contacts and broad experience in negotiating and licensing translation rights in different language areas, either directly or through professional subagents, guarantee the authors and their books the best possible publishers abroad. Opening new doors in international publishing is our core activity in paving the way for Finnish authors into new and devoted homes all over the world.
