The Foundation’s new editorial policy favours digital media as the primary vehicle for the publication of new works and the reissuing of previously published ones. Along with the Colóquio/Letras journal and its own list of publications, it supports publications by other institutions.
The literary journals Colóquio/Letras and Colóquio/Artes were established in 1971 and resulted from the split of Colóquio, Revista de Artes e Letras, a journal devoted to both the arts and literature.
Then run by Hernâni Cidade and Jacinto do Prado Coelho, and edited by Luís Amaro, Colóquio/Letras was initially published every two months, moving to a quarterly release in 1992. In 1984, David Mourão-Ferreira became editor-in-chief of the journal, which, later on, between 1996 and 2008, was overseen by Joana Varela. In 2009, under the management of Nuno Júdice, the journal started to be published three times a year.
Welcoming a plurality of views, Colóquio/Letras publishes mostly essays, including research articles and critical reviews of recent works, but also original poetry and fiction by contemporary authors, both new talents and consecrated writers. It is almost exclusively dedicated to Portuguese-language literature, which covers not only literature from Portugal, but also from Brazil, Portuguese-speaking African countries, and Galicia, which was the subject of two issues in 1996. The journal has a large number of collaborators, including Portuguese and foreign academics in the afore-mentioned areas.
