Episode Description

On this episode of Taiwan Talk we speak to one of the co- founders of Camphor Press, a new digital publishing house based in Taipei that specializes on English Language books about Taiwan and it’s surroundings.

The publisher was launched earlier this year, but it’s already built up a collection of non-fiction offerings all released in a digital format.

We talk about the market for writing about Taiwan and what Camphor press will add to it.

Guest: Camphor Press co-founder Michael Cannings
