We believe that future lies in the hands of our children! The publishing house is developing “Nelly Jelly”, the most popular trademark for kids in Lithuania, initiates two annual competitions - Youth Literature and Children’s Literature contest - that encourages authors to write as well as participates in various social campaigns and initiatives and supports them. We pay close attention to valuable literature for children and youth. Our aim is to publish not only the latest books, but also time-tested literature - the collection of the most valuable classical works. For young readers, we offer a special series “Reading by myself” that helps children to start their reading journey.
“Publishing experience has taught us to respect the wishes and needs of every reader. They change every day, just like us. The quality of the book is important to us - the text, the image and the feeling it evokes in the reader.
The publishing house employs a highly experienced, motivated and creative team; here all members are important, working together hand in hand at different stages of book publishing. Every employee of the publishing house - from publication managers, translators, editors to data analysts - is a professional in their field. After all, we are united by a very important aspect - the indisputable love for literature.
Alma Littera, a publishing house that has been operating successfully for thirty years and still wants to be ahead. We believe in the power of content. We are watching new forms of it come into the world of publishing and we are ready for that change. Alma Littera is becoming a company where content and creativity really matters”.
