We will have the oportunity to talk to them and debate about...

What is the meaning behind these stories? Did translation help get all these emotions out? How

They are Natalia Martín and Beatriz Blanco, two young English teachers born in Alcalá de Henares, who have been sharing their passion for literature since they were even younger.

Although they are not real sisters, their relationship is the definition of family. They worked together on Tinta Digital, a YouTube channel to encourage kids and teens to read more. Eventually, it became an international success after changing the youtube aproach to a yearly literature camp. Besides, they are currently writing the teen saga Los Absolutos, a  series of novels whose first and second volumes have been recently published.

Natalia and Beatriz will share their insights on collaborative writing with us and will comment on the importance of translation for young writers seeking to popularize their work in other countries.

Natalia and Beatriz are the authors of Los Absolutos, a thrilling saga about the adventures of a group of young adults with fairy-tale names, but not so fairy-tale lifes. Divided in two rival gangs, the Poison Devils and the Black Ravens, they will start a quest to find the verdaksals: objects from old stories that contain very dangerous and magical powers..The second volume: Los Absolutos: El Secreto, is out now!
