China is the most populous nation in the world, roughly the same size by land area as the United States. Over the past 5 years, ASU creative writing students and faculty have visited cities all across China from Beijing on the eastern coast to the Tibetan plateau in the west. And right in the middle of the country, ASU is partnered with Sichuan University, working with them to develop China’s first creative writing program at a Chinese university, in Phoenix’s sister-city of Chengdu in Sichuan, an inland province in the southwest nestled between fertile plains and gorges, and the snowcapped foothills of the Himalayas.
