Two of my main professional roles are rather underrepresented. Translators have always been overlooked as creators and bridges between cultures. Non-fiction authors are not as loved as fiction writers, nor perceived to be as skilled. As a result, they are hardly ever invited to conventions and festivals as Guests of Honour. So it was an absolutely honour of mine to be GoH at Flight of Foundry, this wonderful global convention for those in the creative industry with a very interesting panelist-oriented programme.
I was present in mainly my translator and editor capacity, and took part in a range of panels related to translation and SFF. I especially enjoyed the horror panel, on Horror and Identity, here’s my write-up.
