Associations of writers from Shanghai and Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui provinces signed an agreement in Shanghai on August 17, pledging to build a literary development alliance for the Yangtze River Delta region.
The move is seen as the four areas’ fresh step in carrying out a national strategy featuring the integrated development of the region.
The alliance will set up four platforms for literary creation, literary review, literary education and literary marketing.
Meanwhile, it will introduce ten measures, including launching literary programs, training literary talents and promoting cultural and creative products.
The organization will contribute to the literary development of the Yangtze River Delta region and transregional literary development as well, local media said.
Under the agreement, writers associations of Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui will work together to hold a number of literary events like literary forums, book fairs, poetry festivals and online literature festivals.
