Promoting literature

In order to promote and disseminate Spanish Literature, the Office for the Promotion of Books, Reading and Spanish Literature (SGPLLLE) carries out the activities mentioned below in its two fields of action:


  • Granting of National Awards to our most outstanding authors and their works, by a panel in which the SGPLLLE participates with experts based on the category of the award to be given.
  • Literary activities at secondary schools and the presence of authors at universities to comment on and discuss their works, and develop programmes to introduce young readers to the classics, such as "Why read the classics".
  • Commemoration of the centenaries of important writers, holding meetings, exhibitions, conferences, etc.
  • Meetings in Verines, in collaboration with the Universidad de Salamanca, which gathers each year notable writers from each of the official languages of Spain.
  • Activities in the Casa de America in Madrid, organised in cycles with the participation of the most important figures in Latin American literature.


  • Literary activities of Spanish authors in international fairs, foreign universities, Hispanist associations and in Cervantes Institute centres.
  • Subsidies for the translation and publication of works by Spanish authors , whether scientific or literary, into any foreign language.
  • Maintenance of the Hispanicism Website, through an agreement with the Cervantes Institute, which provides access to the latest information on Hispanicism studies around the world, with three large Hispanicism databases: Hispanists, Spanish departments and associations.
