Over a dozen online writers have signed agreements to station their teams in the village.

The village will work as an incubator for cyberspace authors to write their works as well as communicating with each other.

An exhibition on the development of China's online literature over the past two decades is being held in the village. Video clips of movies, TV dramas, and animations adapted from online literature are also on display.

Favorable policies are being offered to attract more online writers.

An official from Hangzhou High-tech Zone, where the village is located, said they are planning to create a complete industrial chain including online literature creation, project incubation, copyright trading, work adaption, and development of derivatives.
