For 67 years we have been inspiring, creating and publishing: exceptional Authors, exceptional books. Founded in 1953, Wydawnictwo Literackie Publishers has been inspiring the most fascinating literary phenomena and publishing the finest names in Polish and world literature for over half a century, including novelists, poets, essayists, historians, and cultural scholars. We are, above all, publishers of literature, particularly of Polish and foreign prose and non‑fiction – including important memoirs, history books, popular science titles, and literature for young people.
Among the authors affiliated with WL are Polish and foreign Nobel Prize winners, as well as outstanding, admired, and award-winning figures from the worlds of culture, literature, and art. We would not, however, be considered one of the most influential on the market if we did not invite the most interesting young and promising writers to work with us, as well as the leading names in popular literature. Wydawnictwo Literackie Publishers means brilliant writers, the foremost figures in culture, and inspiring personalities.
