Whilst things are locked down, why not have a go at literary translation? We’ve partnered with Paper Republic to offer a translation text by author Deng Anqing 邓安庆, and the opportunity for first time translators (anyone who has not yet published a Chinese-English translation) to be mentored by members of the Paper Republic team, including prominent translators Nicky Harman and Eric Abrahamsen.

A final collaborative translation of the piece will be published in the new series of Read Paper Republic: Epidemica mini-series of essays that explore how some of China’s best writers have been personally affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
