Ding Jie has been described in the media and by critics as “a writer for the youth” and as a “soul writer”. He has been known for his literary talent from a very young age, having started to write prolifically from the age of fourteen. He was later admitted to university on account of this talent, having been exempt from taking the entrance examinations. He has had many different life experiences during his youth, havinglived in many different places, from large cosmopolitan cities to rather backward remote regions. That period of his life was filled with both excitement and hardship.Having now reached his middle age, he has made a return to writing. His long fiction and youth literature works have received many literary awards. He is currently a member of the China Writers’ Associations, and vice-president of the Writers’ Association of Nanjing.
