Literary Launchpad with Tim MacGabhann
I’m currently living in London, my hometown, cut off from my usual life in Beijing by pandemic travel restrictions. In normal times, I run a social enterprise with my two best friends that gives university students from around the world free/funded work-travel opportunities in China, but I’ve used the grounding of the last year to go back more intensively to my writing. I’m working on a novel and a collection of poetry, and I’m excited to kick on with them in a new, vibrant community of writers.
I read Chinese and Tibetan Studies at Oxford, and have spent the last six years since I graduated living mainly in Beijing, but also New York, Paris, London and Bangkok. I particularly enjoy translation and I’m now in the process of translating a Mongolian young adult fiction book from Mandarin into English.
