Writing Chinese

'Writing Chinese: Authors, Authority and Authorship' is a new project based at the White Rose East Asia Centre in the University of Leeds, UK. Bringing together writers, translators, publishers, literary agents and academics working in the field of contemporary Chinese literature, we aim to foster closer links and dialogue, and to help promote contemporary Chinese writers in the UK.

The project is funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council through the White Rose East Asia Centre (WREAC) and involves a series of talks, readings, workshops, symposia and other activities in Leeds. We have a monthly featured author in our bookclub, run a series of Chinese-English literary translation competitions and masterclasses, and host a regular blog on this website, featuring articles on contemporary Chinese fiction and interviews with writers, translators, and others working in the field. All are welcome to join in our network.
