The Shenzhen Writing Workshop
As the workshop continues to grow, we have decided to launch the Shenzhen Writing Workshop. As a partner organization, they will be able to better serve the literary community of Shenzhen and continue the workshop’s mission of creating better writers, developing a literary community, and offering educational opportunities to both writers and the general public.
随着写作协会不断发展壮大，我们现决定创设深圳写作协会 (the Shenzhen Writing Workshop）。作为全新的合作组织，深圳写作协会将更好地服务于深圳的文学社群，并传承写作协会的一贯使命：培养优质作者、发展文学社群、为作家及广大群众提供教育机会。
Vivian Zhu will be organizing the Shenzen Writing Workshop. A rebellious Shanghainese, Vivian resides in Shenzhen as an English teacher. She is a proud alumna of the University of Edinburgh in Comparative Literature, and she also studied at the University of Iowa’s Writer’s Workshop Summer Program with Professor Tom Drury in 2019.
Vivian Zhu将会负责深圳写作协会的组织工作。Vivian是一位叛逆的上海人，目前以英语老师的身份生活在深圳。她不仅是毕业于爱丁堡大学比较文学专业的光荣校友，同时也于2019年跟随Tom Drury教授参与了爱荷华大学举办的作家工坊暑期项目。
Vivian’s current interest lies in the inner lives of Chinese millennials in a globalized world, and in particular how overseas experiences shape their values, identities and everyday lives. She is working on her novella, The Boyfriend I Talk with on the Phone.
Vivian目前的主要兴趣集中在全球化背景下的中国00后内心世界，特别是海外经历如何塑造他们的价值观、身份认同以及日常生活。她眼下正在创作自己的中篇小说——《通讯情缘 (The Boyfriend I Talk with on the Phone)》。
