Cai Shiping 蔡世平
Born in Hunan in 1955, Cai Shiping has dedicated himself to the ci form of poetry. In addition to his own works he has edited anthologies, managed websites, and published essays about this traditional lyric form. Ci poems originated in the Tang dynasty and are written to fixed “song templates” which define the line length and placement of rhyme and tone.
