With the COVID-19 pandemic on the rise, this session has been postponed to 4 July. 亚细安10国共有11种官方语言，文学也多语文化。 但是，除了新加坡，华文都不是这些国家的官方语言。 当华文写作者与东南亚其他语文写作者共聚一堂，他们如何相处？ 其他语文写作者对华语语系文学了解多少？ ASEAN has 10 country members and 11 official languages, boasting a diverse range of literatures and cultures. However, among these countries, only Singapore uses Chinese as an official language. When our Chinese language authors meet their counterparts from Southeast Asia, how do they interact?
