About

These writers observe everyday moments, relationships and emotion as material for their works. In recalling, recollecting and rewriting, does the act of putting pen to paper change how they have remembered a particular moment? This panel discusses turning the ordinary into the literary, and how memory figures in their respective genres of fiction, poetry and the essay.

关于

作家的写作材料包括日常的瞬间片刻、人际关系、情感等,再把抽象的追忆转码为实在的文字。这一过程中,作家对某段时刻的回忆有何变化?这场座谈会将探讨如何化平凡为文学,以及记忆在小说、诗歌及散文创作中的角色和作用。

节目将以华语进行,结束前安排了线上观众问答环节。
