Changming Yuan
Vancouver, Canada

Changming Yuan grew up in a remote Chinese village and had no exposure to poetry of any kind until he was 14 years of age. Yuan was educated first at Shanghai Jiaotong University and then at Tianjin Teachers University. Before moving to Canada in 1989, Yuan worked as a college lecturer and published several books and a dozen essays on translation and the English language. Since he received his PhD from the University of Saskatchewan in 1996, he has been teaching English in Vancouver; during his first trip to Canada’s beautiful National Park of Banff in the late summer of 2004, he began to write poetry in English and thus far has had over 150 poems appearing online as well as in literary journals, which include Dalhousie Review (CA), The London Magazine (UK), Porcupine (US), Private(IT) and others. Living together with his wife and two sons in a house of heart, he is now seeking pioneering publishers for his first collection(s) of poetry and hoping to establish a journal or publication house of his own in a few years.

selected poem

South China Cicada

no human ear has ever heard of you cloistering yourself deep in the soil silently sucking all sounds from roots for more than thirteen years in a row until high up on a summer painted twig you slough off your earthly self pouring all your being in a single song before the sun sets for the yellow leaf
First appeared in Byline (Jul./Aug. 2005) no.290.
