- We are very happy to welcome Olivia Lasky to Northern Stories, says Astrid Dalaker. We will benefit from her experience in a wide range of areas, both in terms of financial management, but also her knowledge and experience in literature, translations, PR and social media will be welcome.
- I am absolutely thrilled to start working with Northern Stories! Having been in the translation game for some time now, I’m aware of their position as one of Norway’s most exciting new agencies. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to help contribute to further growth and to the spread of Norwegian literature abroad.
