Talking Translation Over Coffee in Ofuna

By Avery Fischer Udagawa, Bangkok

On June 11, 2016, several SCBWI Japan Translation Group members and friends met for coffee in Ofuna Station, Kamakura. We forgot to take a photo until one participant had left, but here we are!

Topics of discussion included publishers for new translation projects; strategies to keep out-of-print titles alive; and Japan’s MG/YA novels about unique afterschool activities, such as broadcasting club, diving, gardening, flying, and tanka poetry. We want to translate these books!
