Xu Zhongxing (? - 1578) was a Chinese litterateur of the Ming Dynasty. He was one of the Latter Seven Masters. He completed the Jinshi level of the Imperial Examination in 1550. Later he was appointed as Xingbu Zhushi (刑部主事), and became Buzhengshi (布政使) of Jiangxi at last.

Most of his poems portrayed the beautiful landscape and social customs of various places, and expressed his homesickness. Xu's poems were strongly influenced by Du Fu, but lack of profoundness and forcefulness.[1]
