Since 1996, Günışığı Kitaplığı has been introducing unique examples of contemporary literature for children and young adults, both from Turkish and world literature, with the mission of paving the way for the progress and development of children’s and young adult literature in Turkey. In addition to publishing selected works of master authors, we have been introducing many new authors to the field and executing award winning publishing projects. We publish and distribute books of literary value that suit the needs of a variety of age groups. Works from world literature are meticulously translated and edited to preserve their narrative characteristics and to present the most effective and correct use of Turkish. Having focused on and specialized only in contemporary children’s and young adult literature publishing for over 20 years by now, we developed close collaborations with all the stakeholders of reading culture such as teachers, librarians, academicians and NGO’s. We annually organize ZCY Short Story Competition, ZCEG Publishing Conference and EES Teacher Training Seminar. Contents of our conferences and seminars are being published bi-annually in our e-journal Keçi.
We also represent the sales rights of our Turkish authors and illustrators whose titles have been sold to many countries so far.
