Chew Kok Chang



Chew Kok Chang 周国灿 (b. 1934, Guangdong, China–), otherwise known as Zhou Can (周粲), or other pen names such as Qiu Ling 丘陵, Yu Yin 郁因, Lin Zhong Yue 林中月, Zhou Zhi Xian 周志翔, and Ai Jia 艾佳, is a well-known Chinese author in Singapore. He is a versatile writer, whose writings consist of poems, prose, short stories and critical essays.1

Early life
Chew was born in Guangdong province, China, in 1934. His family moved to Singapore in 1937 when he was three.2 Chew received his education in Singapore, having studied at Duan Meng Primary School and Chung Cheng High School.3 The publication of his first collection of poems, 孩子底梦: 新诗创作集  [The Dream of a Child], in 1953, marked the start of his writing career.4


Chew graduated from Nanyang University’s Faculty of Chinese Language with a Bachelor of Arts in 1960.5 After receiving a scholarship from the Singapore government in 1964, he continued his studies at the University of Singapore (now National University of Singapore) and graduated with first-class honours in 1966. Chew then obtained his Master of Arts in Literature at the same university in 1969.6

Since then, Chew had taken up teaching positions as a teacher and lecturer in local schools and the National Institute of Education, and worked at the Curriculum Development Institute of Singapore.7 He is currently retired.8

Literary accomplishments
Better known by his pen name Zhou Can (周粲), Chew has been an active figure in the Singapore Chinese literary circle. He started writing poems when he was a student at Chung Cheng High School.9 Since the publication of his first poetry compilation, 孩子底梦: 新诗创作集  [The Dream of a Child] in 1953, Chew has continued to write with passion and has more than 80 titles to his name to date.10 Although he started off as a poet, Chew is regarded as a very versatile writer by many. Besides poetry, he has published other genres such as prose, travelogues, short stories, mini-novels, children’s literature and academic essays.11 His essays cover topics such as modern poetry and classical Chinese literature on Song Dynasty lyrics and Yuan Dynasty music, as well as the teaching of Chinese language and literature.12


Chew is also regarded as one of the pioneers in the promotion of the mini-novel genre in Singapore, alongside other Singapore authors such as Wong Meng Voon (黄孟文), Tian Liu (田流) and Luo Bin Lu (骆宾路).13 In February 1988, Chew became the first Singaporean writer to publish a compilation of mini-novels titled 恶魔之夜: 微型小 [The Devil’s Night: A Collection of Mini-novels].14 He then went on to publish other mini-novel compilations, including 抢劫 [Robbery] (1990), 沉默族:微型小说集 [The Silent Group] (2000), 夜车: 微型小说集 [The Night Vehicle] (2003) and 周粲微型小 [A Collection of Zhou Can’s Mini-novels] (2004). Chew was also the main editor of the mini-novel compilation 万花筒: 微型小 [A Kaleidoscope of Mini-novels] (1994)15 and the periodical 微型小说季刊 [Quarterly Periodical on Mini-novels], published by the Singapore Association of Writers.16 In the afterword of The Night Vehicle, Chew mentioned that the mini-novel is one of his favourite genres besides poetry and prose, and that he hoped to continue writing mini-novels.17 His vigour in writing and editing has contributed greatly to the promotion of the mini-novel genre in Singapore.18

Besides poetry and mini-novels, Chew has also written and translated children’s literature, and this includes poems, nursery rhymes, fairy tales and folktales.19 His poetry collection for children, 给孩子们的诗 [Poems for Children] (1974), was awarded the National Book Development Council of Singapore Book Prize under the Children’s and Youth Literature category in 1975.20 His Chinese adaptation of folktales from the Philippines, compiled into a collection titled The Crow and the Coleto: Folktales from the Philippines (1980), was translated into both English and Malay.21
