Students Shortlisted for Young Writers Award
Stories about intrepid journeys written by students, Rohan Daswani, Katya Foong and Evan Wu, have been shortlisted for the Hong Kong Young Writers Award.
Each year hundreds of students write short stories based around a theme. This year’s theme is the story, New Journeys to the West. Almost 1400 years ago, a brave young monk made a multi-year journey from China across the southwestern mountains to India. His trip was celebrated in a novel called Journey to the West, written about 500 years ago.
The shortlisted students used this as inspiration to write their own intrepid tales. The winners will be announced at an Awards Ceremony on the 21st of March 2018 in the Ocean View Court in Cyberport.
