Martin to cover all tuition and fees (travel and meals not included) for one applicant to attend the Taos Toolbox writing workshop. Applicants “must be from from a country where English is not the primary language.” The winner was selected by workshop staff including Walter Jon Williams.

As a translator, she has translated into Chinese several Marvel and DC comics, including Aquaman Vol. 1: The Trench.
As an author, she’s been published in the Florilegium: Chinese Literature Today, the magazine Life Week, and the new media account Non-Existence. Her short story Silent Syllables won the China Science Fiction Readers’ Choice Award.
