Nadine was selected to represent Random House and Australia on Open Eyes to China, a literary excursion to China organised by UK- based literary agent Toby Eady and author Xinran in April 2004.
She was one of eleven participants in a group of publishing practitioners from around the world. The trip was an introduction to China’s literary scene and designed to foster relationships between Chinese writers and Western publishers. Nadine has ongoing associations with many of the writers and publishers she met during this trip.
