Living in a foreign country can be lonely. Poetry has helped me...

Poetry writing can be therapeutic in times of distress and depression, according to an SPCSB study. Ding Ding knows this better than anyone, as a China native living in Sydney, Australia.

In Ding’s new book, “Walk Along with Nostalgia,” the poet provides poems of self-encouragement and tranquility. Tackling topics like nature and friendship, she gives readers a sense of peace and self-discovery. Ding includes both English and Chinese versions of her poems in the book, an ode to both her old country and new.

“Living in a foreign country alone can be lonely,” said Ding.

“Poetry has helped me find both meaning and happiness throughout my time in Sydney. Everyone can learn something from my work, and I want to teach readers that many times, poetry can be the best medicine.”
