This chapter examines the evolution and development of state financial support for publishing in the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland from World War II to the close of the twentieth century. Focusing on the Council for the Encouragement of the Music and the Arts (CEMA), it traces the evolution and development of state support for literary enterprise and publishing in both jurisdictions, particularly for authors. It also discusses broader funding ventures, joint initiatives, awards and prizes, and the professionalisation and modernisation of the industry. Finally, it considers the showcase of Irish publishing at the Frankfurt Bookfair in 1996.
