Beginning October 1, 2018, the 16 Frankfurt Fellows will visit publishing companies and attend networking events in Berlin, Frankfurt and Cologne. The highlight of the two-week programme is the Frankfurter Buchmesse (October 10-14, 2018). To celebrate the anniversary, a reception with the Frankfurt Fellows will be held on October 11, to which former programme participants as well as publishers who have hosted the programme will also be invited.

Since 2017, one Frankfurt Fellow each year receives funding from the Kobrak family as the 'Fred Kobrak Frankfurt Fellow'. The 2018 'Fred Kobrak Frankfurt Fellow' is Ana Ojeda from Argentina.
