Stavros Christodoulou (Cyprus), Xia Shang (China)

Tuesday, December 1. 8.30 pm Beijing Time


How do writers develop their stories and characters into full-blown, multilayered and complex stories? How do they approach the process? What literary and structural choices and sacrifices do they make along the way? How do they find the right voice for their protagonist? In this discussion we welcome Stavros Christodoulou from Cyprus and Xia Shang from China to discuss their working processes and how their creative works ultimately take shape. Stavros Christodoulou is a journalist and author from Nicosia. His book The Day the River Froze won the European Union Prize for Literature. Xia Shang, is a novelist and a representative writer of post-avant-garde literature in China. Aside from his individual publications, four volumes of Xia Shang Selected Works and a nine-volume Xia Shang Fiction Series have also been published.
