Li Yuyao, Executive Editor of Foreign Literature and Arts, will guide participants through an overview of the current situation in publishing at Shanghai Translation Publishing House, China's largest comprehensive professional translation publishing house, exploring how Singaporean writers might break into the Chinese publishing industry. Beginning from the initial selection of topics, Li Yuyao will lead an in-depth discussion of the publication process, editing, proofreading, and other publishing processes, allowing participants to gain insight into the current status of traditional publishing in Mainland China. She will also offer suggestions regarding the textual norms in the process of English-to-Chinese translation and how to better align the translated texts with the reading habits of Chinese readers.

This session will be conducted in the Chinese language.

This workshop is for beginning, emerging, and established writers working in the Chinese language who hope to break into the Mainland market.

Co-presented by Tender Leaves Translation and Singapore Book Council.
