Outside In World launched new web resources in 2012 and 2013

With the kind support of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and in liaison with partners such as the British Centre for Literary Translation Outside In World is delighted to announce the launch of a wealth of new online material for a range of different audiences.

Outside In World has identified key needs concerning the development, promotion and enjoyment of books from around the world and is responding to them in the form of dedicated website 'zones' that will feature an Education Zone for teachers and librarians, a Young People's Zone, a Parents Zone and a Book Professionals Zone for publishers and translators. funny pictures funny
