C. There’s no doubt that the Chinese Literature Magazine has become a banner of the contemporary literature periodical circle, and the annual Chinese literature star road has become a glorious pageant for Chinese literature writers. For this reason, I’m willing to share the joy of literature at this joyful year-end node with all literary friends and poets, and at the same time, I’ll drive to the new blue ocean of literary creation with this glory.
Finally, I think we shouldn’t only thank the haze and cold current of life, but also the sunshine and warmth of human nature. We’ll surely gain a rich and full spiritual world and move towards a deeper, farther and wider world.
Congratulations to all the award-winning writers and poets! I also wish you a happy New Year and a bumper harvest!
