Korean Literature Showcase

About

Since its launch in 2002, our annual International Workshop for Translation and Publication of Korean Literature has sought ways for Korean literature to interact with the wider world, addressing such topics as translation of Korean literature, overseas publishing, cultural exchange and digital publishing. Since 2018, the event has been held as part of Korean Literature Showcase, which introduces Korean literature and publishing industry to publishers invited from around the world.
