Website Introduction  
This website aims at improving the Sino-U.S. relations and promoting peace between the mainland and Taiwan. It is published at a critical juncture in Chinese and American history when both countries can celebrate a fruitful mutual engagement, yet face some uncertainties for their long-term interactions.
It is run by the China-U.S. Friendship Exchange, Inc., which was founded in Northern California in September 2006 by Dr. Sheng-Wei Wang, a scholar, writer and media figure. The site will host monthly web publications by invited experts on major China-U.S. issues and related Taiwan topics. Forums and book publications are planned as the website further expands in the future.

By Zak Dychtwald

金慶松

 

⋯⋯新聞稿

日期:12/14(六)下午1:304:30

地點:Ingleside at King Farm/Ellicott Room

住址:701 King Farm Blvd, Rockville, MD 20850

費用:免費

第廿一回的「寫···聚」於11/9舉行,有十位文友出席,一一評論了六篇文章。評論時,有人偏重在「文以載道」,有人強調寫作技巧,也就是如何將想表達的內容清晰、精準、有效地傳達給讀者。十一月份是感恩的月份,「寫···聚」的文友感恩一年來免費的場地、咖啡以及服務,自由樂捐了近兩百元給Ingleside老人中心的「感謝員工基金」(Employee Appreciation Fund)。該日早上,InglesideBazaar義賣會,不少文友 都來淘寶,還真的淘到不少珍品,休息時大家拿出把玩、欣賞,互相觀摩,很是興奮。年老了,就是把曾經的珍藏清清理理、棄棄捨捨,一一樂捐出來。喜購玩物,緣聚一場,多年以後,即使依依難捨,也將一一忍捨。文友們也送了一張「卡輕感恩重」的感謝卡給方映荷女士,感謝她每個月都為「寫···聚」安排聚會場地。

 

「寫···聚」的夥伴們,勤樂寫,細品閱,中肯評,享歡聚。一般的文人相輕,「寫···聚」是文人相親,大夥們在寫作的道路上砌磋琢磨,刪補修改,相持相親,互助互學。希望每一位夥伴能細水長流地參與「寫···聚」,大夥亦師亦友,一同循序漸進地學習、改進、放空、成長。唐朝的白居易說:「凡人為文,私於自是,不忍於割截,或失於繁多,其間妍媸益又自惑,必待交友有公鑒無姑息者,討論而削奪之,然後繁簡當否,得其中矣。」正是期待文友們討論刪修文章呀!

 

寫:多看、多寫、多進步

閲:仔細閱讀、「批判性」閱讀

評:在限定時間內針對文章提出建社性的評論

聚:快樂和諧地聚會互助互學
