Hello, and welcome to Shining Moon: A Speculative Fiction Podcast, Episode 6. Today we’ll continue our series by asking questions about translation and writing in English as your second language. We’ll find out how difficult it is to write in your second (or third) language, what the advantages of writing in another language are, how you deal with reader expectations, and how to go about getting reputable translations for your work.
My guests today are Cecile Cristofari, Jelena Dunato, and Floris Kleijne. Let’s start with some introductions!
