> Language >Place: Blog Carnival #2

Nicolette Wong–a journalist/writer based in Hong Hong–recently hosted the 2nd edition of BluePrintReview’s > Language > Place blog carnival.  I imagine it’s quite the task to host a blog carnival–gathering, assembling, designing the event.  I stumbled upon Nicolette’s retrospective musings on the process over at the BluePrint blog.

Here’s what she said:

“The second edition is a voyage into imaginary spaces and real places re-imagined, in voices from around the world. Writers decipher what they see and hear–in words, codes, images and hints between the lines that they write. And the places shift amid detours, tender moments of misunderstanding or confusion to arrive at the heart of the stories. What’s on the page/screen is often born out of one’s search along a circuitous path.

Some of the authors included were previous contributors to the blog carnival and/or BluePrintReview. Some came across the first edition and wanted to join. The creative pieces–flash stories and photography–I solicited. The process was a little similar to that of writing a group of flash fictions: collecting impressions, then finding the right words, moods and homes for them.”

Much to my delight, Nicolette solicited my contribution: ‘Translation Treatment’.
