Poet

Website: Xi Chuan

Xi Chuan was born in 1963 in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, and is now resident in Beijing. He was a frequent contributor to unofficial poetry journals in Beijing, Shanghai, and Sichuan during the 1980s and 1990s, and lent a hand in editing Tendency 倾向. In recent years, he has travelled to poetry conferences and festivals in Europe and North America. Following the death of two of his friends in 1989 (Haizi by suicide and Luo Yihe by illness), Xi Chuan’s style of poetry was altered.
