And we're back!

I know you're all thinking it, 浪子回头金不换, the prodigal newsletter has returned and there's nothing sweeter. Well I hope that we can deliver with this, the first instalment in a year and a half.

Be warned though, we're not quite back to our regularly scheduled program, since the perversion of the blue bird site and its lovely literary community has meant that news and stories have become harder to come by. Still, we've managed to cobble together a fair amount for you to get excited about and will also be trialing a little something that's new.

But first, the annual, start-of-the-year reminder to any aspiring or experienced Chinese-English translators that registration for both Bristol Translates & BCLT Summer School is currently open. Both are online this time around, and while there is some time before the application window for Bristol closes, you only have until Sunday 14 April to apply for Multilingual Prose, Multilingual Poetry, Multilingual Theatre or Training the Trainer at BCLT, if Chinese is your language of choice. Please do spread the word. And if you yourself are interested, then I highly recommend signing up for either for how valuable an opportunity this is to start building your translation network and toolbox.

Now, onto the news:

Extracts, stories and poems:


Reviews and releases:

We have three big name releases this time and one really fascinating take on a poetry collection translation:
