Focus on Turkey

TurkLitNext week the London Book Fair takes place in Earls Court in London. It looks like it will be a great event with over 1600 exhibitors from 58 countries.

Turkey is the Market Focus this year and will have a large presence at the fair. From cultural events, translation seminars, author interviews and much more there’s a lot going on. You can check out all the details, along with contributor information in this booklet.

There’s some familiar faces here with Maureen Freely, Amy Spangler from Anatolia Literary agency and Izzy Finkel a fellow finalist from Translation Day, along with authors Fatih Erdogan, Inci Aral and Elif Shafak, among many many others.

Well worth a visit if you’re in the area…

In other news an article I wrote about the translations for Translation Day is in the online version of Trinity’s brand-new Journal of Literary Translation JOLT.
