Mr Monkey in Bristol, 15th May

"It seems rather complicated, that translating lark"

In the morning Mr Monkey went to more Crimefest panels. He heard Don Bartlett, Reg Keeland, Tina Nunnally, Ros Schwartz being moderated by Ann Cleeves while talking about the difficulties of translating foriegn writers into English. Apparently translating swearing isn't very easy. Later he heard Declan Burke, Chris Ewan, Steve Mosby, Kevin Wignall, (moderated by Donna Moore) talking about writing from the viewpoint of the villains (though they all insisted their characters weren't really very evil).

You can read about Crimefest 2009 at the Crimefest 2009 page, download mp3s of the panels from the Crimefest 2009 programme page, and, most importantly, read about Crimefest 2010 at the Crimefest website.
