The London Book Fair

Description

This year’s London Book Fair, held from April 8-10 at Earls Court, was an exciting occasion for the Korean publishing and literary community, with Korea being showcased as the Market Focus country for 2014.

The London Book Fair Korea Market Focus programme consisted broadly of two different types: the Professional Programme, in partnership with the Publishers Association (PA) and the Korean Publishers Association (KPA); and the Cultural Programme, curated by the British Council and LTI Korea. This was the culmination of a number of activities and events which began last year, and the Cultural Programme will continue through this year with Korean writers participating in literary festivals and residencies around the UK. Activities in 2013 leading up to this year’s London Book Fair included literary events with novelists Ch’oe Yun, Jung Young Moon, and Jeong Chan at the Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK); a UK writers’ trip to Korea; a Korean literary professionals’ study trip to the UK supported by the Arts Council Korea; and a UK editors’ trip to Korea.
