Vi Thùy Linh (1980) is a poet.

She lives and works as a journalist in Hanoi. Although not a member of the Vietnamese Writers Association, she has published three poetry collections. Her work is representative of Vietnam's newest generation, which knows of bombing from movies and books rather than personal experience. Her poems are very up-to-date in their strong and sometimes sexual display of emotion. Showing no fear of public censure, Vi Thuy Linh's work displays the optimistic and adventurous attitudes of her generation.

She is translated into English and included in the anthology, Black Dog, Black Night
