Wing Yi is an Australian-based Chinese writer and academic with a passion for literature, language and translation. She has a doctorate in creative writing. Her bilingual work has appeared online and in print.
Growing up in Hong Kong, Wing Yi’s writing is nourished by a hybrid culture from early days. When she came to Melbourne seven years ago, her Chinese heritage underwent a significant challenge in the greater diaspora, which eventually revealed to her the wonder and barriers of embracing an in-between identity.
Wing Yi is committed to bridging literary relationships between China and Australia. She is currently working at Writers Victoria taking charge of the Diverse Writer China Project, an initiative to enhance professional development, profiling and publishing opportunities for Chinese-Australia writers in Melbourne.
Wing Yi can be found in the Writers Victoria office on Mondays. She can be reached by phone 03 9094 7842 (Mondays) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
