Folktales & Fabrications

Hi friends! This is going to be my new blog about my adventures as a Fulbright Fellow in China. I’ll be in northern China, near Russia, in the city of Harbin for a language program starting this week (the 5th!) before heading down south in October to the beautiful city of Hangzhou to research Chinese folktales and myths that are connected to particular places around southern China. I’m interested in stories about ghosts, demons, transformations, mountains, superstitions, talking animals, rice terraces, and of course, anything involving dragons! Later on in the grant, I’ll be writing short stories inspired by these folktales and the landscape of China. If you’ve heard of any Chinese folktales or have reading suggestions, let me know!
