KHN Alum (2011) David Hoon Kim has announced the publication of his short story, "Le chien unicéphale." The story was published in Brins d'éternité, a French-language Québécois magazine devoted to fantastic and science fiction literature.

In a 2018 interview, David Hoon Kim discusses his writing path, translation, and voice:

FTA - "While he writes in English and French, and speaks Korean fluently, Kim says he won’t write literature in Korean. He doesn’t feel as if he knows it well enough. There’s a difference, he says, between the knowledge of a language and the ability to make the words into sentences, and sentences into paragraphs that become literary fiction. Then there’s another problem.

'If you’re writing in a certain language, you’re writing in the tradition of that language,' Kim says." To read more, see the article below.

Congratulations, David!
