ORLANDO is a Ukrainian publishing house that introduces new names in contemporary Ukrainian literature. We collaborate with debutants, those referred to as "young writers," irrespective of their age, profession, gender, or work experience.
ORLANDO represents live literature. In our understanding, it's literature that values:
— the authenticity of the author's voice;
— diverse, vibrant, and unfiltered Ukrainian language;
— lived experiences that help transform the past into a resourceful future;
— the therapeutic effect of the text;
— a combination of depth and ease of storytelling.
Our books inspire personal growth, help readers meet with themselves, and strive to make them better individuals.


MissionTo develop and popularize contemporary Ukrainian literature in Ukraine and worldwide, discover new talents, support debutants, foster a community of strong, competitive, and successful Ukrainian writers, and contribute to the cultural development of Ukraine. Literature has the power to change the world; it provides us with the ability to communicate, understand, and empathize with each other. We aim to create books that will positively impact Ukrainian society, the world, and contribute to the expansion of Ukraine's literary canon.
GoalTo become a symbol of innovation, courage, and quality in Ukrainian publishing, introduce new Ukrainian voices to the literary world, and promote their growth and flourishing. ORLANDO creates a literary product that develops emotional intelligence, helps reflect on and comprehend the history of individual experiences and the history of the country as a whole, broadens perspectives, and enriches our country's cultural heritage.
