Richard Lloyd

London, UK

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.
