Each time we come to a book we give it a different reading because we bring a different person to it. It is not you who reads the book, the book reads you
― Jack Lasenby


We are a group of friends. A group of readers. A group of storytellers. A group of dreamers. And hard-workers…

Kovačnica priča (Story Smithery) is a new publishing house based in Belgrade and Zlatibor, Serbia. Consciously trying to do our best – to work and live by what we stand for – we believe we are creating a better place for ourselves and the others. Eventually making the world just a little better, even for a moment. We believe that good stories can change the world, and that is how Kovačnica priča came to life.
We are focusing on three main areas:

  • Translating and publishing Nordic literature in Serbia
  • Publishing books on entrepreneurship, leadership, and communication
  • Finding young writers from Ex-Yugoslavia and publishing their work
