About Accent Society presents Contemporary Chinese Poetry
Accent Society is a nomadic literary organization that facilitates synergies across languages, borders, and media. It is a home where accents become the strongest notes.
Here, we are pleased to introduce a diverse ensemble of Chinese poets: Wang Yin, Wang Jiaxin, Ming Di, Qin Sanshu, Su Xian, Chris Song Zijiang , Shangyang Fang, Jiaoyang Li, Jinjin Xu, Hongru Pan, Ivy Liuyu Chen, Yuhang Li, Susie Zhu, Yun Qin Wang, Cynthia Chen.
This includes both established and emerging voices. Those whose works have been translated into English. Those who are actively translating between English and Chinese; text, and other media. Those who have lived bilingually with both bewilderment and discernment. And those who craft their verses directly in their foreign tongue. Their endeavors reflect an ongoing exploration and a dynamic interplay of Western and Chinese poetic traditions. They are a selective group of some of the most intriguing contemporary Chinese poets.
Where possible we will update our listings to notify of cancelled, postponed and rescheduled events, however we STRONGLY ADVISE that you check with the venue/organiser in the first instance for updates.
