  • Content

The National Museum of Taiwan Literature (NMTL) has been invested in the translation of Taiwan literature and its representation in the international literary arena. Beginning from 2018, NMTL publishes Peak, a compilation of excerpt translations of the short list of the Taiwan Literature Awards. The publication aims at representing the vibrant literary scene in Taiwan as well as its global marketability. NMTL also observes the global trend of genre cross-over. The 2019 Taiwan Literature Awards introduces a genre-free short list, which envisions a boundary-crossing creativity. 2019 also sees the inauguration of the Best Newcomer Award, celebrating the achievement of young and rising writers.  
Peak 2019 compiles the excerpt translations of the 2019 Taiwan Literature Awards short list that consists of 30 published works, accompanied by introductions to authors and their respective works.
