The Faculty of Arts at HKBU has long been committed to promoting creativity and developing different creative projects. The ‘Chinese Writers' Workshop (CWW) is dedicated to promoting contemporary Chinese literature and culture, and it aims to present its diverse and rich literary landscapes. As usual, CWW is launching ‘Chinese Writers-in-Residence Programme’ (CWR) and ‘Hong Kong Writers-in-Residence Programme’ (HKWR) and Hong Kong Writers-in-Residence Programme’ (HKWR) this spring after the "Distinguished Chinese Writers Series" last September, and we have invited emerging overseas Chinese writers to meet and exchange with their Hong Kong counterparts at HKBU for one month.
CWW will host the 3rd CWR and HKWR from 6 March to 6 April 2023. Mr. Chu Yu-hsun, a Taiwanese novelist, received multiple awards such as Golden Tripod Awards and Mr. Lin Rung San, Literature Award from Taiwan, and Mr. Huang Canran, a Hong Kong/ Chinese poet, is one of the most preferred translators in Mainland China. They are the CWR this year. Ms. Samwai Lam, the selected HKWR this year, has received award from the House of Hong Kong Literature with her short novel.
The three writers will share their works and experiences with Hong Kong readers at various events, including the ‘Writers' Reading and Conversation’, individual talks and writing workshops. The two programmes will be held mixed-mode. Further details can be found on the Facebook page of CWW. Those who have enquiries can call 3411 2875 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
