Regardless what script or alphabet you write in, literature is the world’s language and the window by which civilisations come to know one another. The contemporary literary scene in China has become extremely diverse as internet and other new media emerge as key methods of transmission. As such shifts in social and literary environments proceed, what might we do nowadays to tell stories from China to domestic and international readers? On August 24th, we invite renowned writers from China and Australia to share their extraordinary experiences. We hope you will take part in this intellectual and literary encounter.
