The Hub for Excellence in the Literary Arts

Fondazzjoni HELA, the hub for excellence in the literary arts, is an autonomous platform working to foster excellence across the literary sector in Malta and Gozo. We represent and work with and for writers, translators, publishers and editors. 

We engage with local and foreign organisations, individuals and public entities to create dialogue between players in the sector and policy-makers and to advocate for good and fair practices within the local literary field.   

A major part of HELA’s mission is to design and lead research efforts that help the Foundation develop effective strategies based on sound scientific knowledge of the sector.  

Finally, HELA is a contact point where writers, publishers, translators and editors can find tools and opportunities to help them take their craft and business to the next level.
