The Awards for Creative Writing in Chinese has been organized since 1979, aiming to promote reading and encourage creative writing in Chinese. The Award is divided into six categories, including poetry, essay, fiction, literary criticism, children story and children picture category.
The city has always been a source of inspiration for writers who want to capture, as well as re-imagine, the cityscape and the urban experience. Drawing upon texts written by writers from Hong Kong to Britain, this workshop (comprising a lecture and group discussion) will provide an opportunity for participants to explore the various ways in which the writers represent, narrate and re-imagine the city.
The Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPL) of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department will organise the 12th Hong Kong Literature Festival from 28 June to 15 July 2018. A pre-festival competition titled“Literary Performance Competition”is being held to enhance the pleasure of reading and stimulate students’self-learning ability through interpretation, by means of vocal expression and body language, of what they know and understand about a literary work. Participants, either on their own or with a partner, are required to give an interpretation of a Chinese story of their choice in the form of storytelling. The time limit for each performance is 5 minutes. Local primary students are welcomed to participate.
