The Asia Pacific Writers and Translators Association

The Asia Pacific Writers & Translators Association (AP Writers) is a not-for-profit, non-political association for authors and literary translators established to advance the careers of authors and literary translators, nurture the quality and diversity of literatures in the region, and promote their members’ work internationally.

AP Writers hold events and conferences, providing members with opportunities to build global connections, socialise and learn from others in the field.  They seek to foster timely discussions, identify road blocks for writers from the region,  find solutions, and provide opportunities for established authors to mentor emerging voices.
