Hong Kong Young Writers Competition

13 February 2017

This year’s annual Hong Kong Young Writers competition was, conveniently for our students, focused on the topic of, ‘New Tales of Old Shanghai’.

  • Hong Kong Young Writers Competition

Due to the prestige of the competition, the chance of having entries published in an anthology, and the prospect of being invited to Hong Kong for the awards ceremony, our Key Stage Three students were inspired to produce some truly fantastic pieces of writing. Gripping stories of love, loss, betrayal and mystery were prominent, and it was truly enjoyable to read all of them and to witness the superb writing talents of our students. It was also clear to see that students had expended considerable effort throughout the writing process, which underlines the competitive and positive ethos we promote.

Unfortunately, only ten pieces of work could be submitted for entry to the contest, and this was an extremely tough decision. However, the following students were successful in being shortlisted for entry: Yeo Hoon Yoon, Raymond Sun, Helene Zeiss, Henry Haefliger, Jenny Jiang, Lara Woo, Munique Tan, Natarsha Yan and Pina Jurisic. Congratulations to all of these students for producing some very memorable and exciting pieces of work!

I am also delighted to announce that Munique Tan has been invited to attend the official awards ceremony in Hong Kong, and now has the chance to be crowned as the Hong Kong Young Writer of the Year, for her story, ‘The Red Ribbon’. This is a huge achievement and I am sure you will all join me in wishing Munique luck for further success!
