The workshops will be conducted in Cantonese.
Veteran editors or authors will explain the concept of literary creation in different genres, share their experience in literary creation and discuss with participants the original Chinese works they submitted.
The quota for each workshop is 30.
- The works submitted must be original and must not exceed 1 000 Chinese characters.
- Applicants may submit their works, whether published or not, on the theme of "Nature".
Each form is for application for one workshop only. Applicants who wish to apply for more than one workshop should use a separate form for each application.
As the three workshops cover different genres, applicants are required to submit their original Chinese works in the same genre as the selected workshop.
Applicants are advised to retain copies of their works. Regardless of the application result, submitted scripts will not be returned.
Shortlisted applicants will be notified by the organisers one week before each workshop is held. Unsuccessful applicants will not be notified separately.
An attendance certificate will be issued to participants who attain the required attendance rate, normally on the last day of each workshop.
Workshop schedules are subject to change with the organisers’ announcement as final.
