We are a dynamic network, based at 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 writing in the English-speaking world.
We run a thriving programme of events, competitions and online features, and work closely with Paper Republic and other partners.
The Centre originates in the Writing Chinese project which began in 2014 and was funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council, originally through the White Rose East Asia Centre (WREAC).
