A small Northern Virginia-based Chinese short story discussion group that has been forced to relocate to Zoom is able to accept a few new members. Post-virus, the group intends either to transition to a hybrid in-person/online format or continue solely online. All readings are at an advanced level (think 残雪 and 莫言), and until recently the discussion was led by a native-Chinese teacher in Chinese. Until the group finds another teacher, discussion will be in a combination of English and Chinese. Besides short stories, the group also reads selections from literary memoirs and novels. The group now “meets” every other Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. online.
To be considered for membership, please e-mail Dorothy Behre at "
