To promote literary creation and cultivate an interest in Chinese creative writing among young people.
Content and Form:
  • 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.
Requirements for Personal Chinese Works:
  • 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".
Programme Details and Points to Note:
  • 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.
