Having discovered her Tibetan heritage as a young adult, journalist-poet Tsering Woeser (唯色) now occupies a unique position as chronicler of modern Tibetan memory. Her writings are widely regarded as the voice of Tibet. Woeser received the Prince Claus Prize in 2011 for her compelling blend of literary quality and political reportage, as well as the International Women of Courage award by the US Department of State in 2013.
World-renowned as a most vocal, vigilant observer of Chinese-Tibetan relations and ethnic minorities issues within China, Wang Lixiong (王力雄) was recognized with the Freedom of Expression Award from the Independent Chinese PEN Association. Wang’s works are widely considered some of the most authoritative and balanced on Tibetan issues by a native Chinese writer.
