Translators in Asia have a new reason to attend the Asian Festival of Children’s Content in Singapore. AFCC 2013 will include a half-day translation seminar, in addition to the writing and illustration tracks that make it the premier children’s book creators’ conference in Asia.
AFCC will take place May 25-30, 2013. Tracks for translators, writers and illustrators are May 27-30.
An early bird registration discount is advertised through March 31. A significant discount is usually offered to SCBWI members.
