《城市文學》是城大文康委員會創辦的一本文學雜誌,創刊號於2006年9月正式出版。旨在鼓勵香港及澳門青年學子積極從事華文創作,以文會友,並藉此促進兩地的文學交流。創刊號除刋載城市文學創作獎」的得獎作品外,還選錄了城大師生和校友的創作、評論和譯介作品。「城市文學創作獎」是城市大學舉辦的徵文比賽,首屆比賽公開給港澳地區的大專生參與,更邀請了六位海內外名家 陳冠中先生、張大春先生、董橋先生、葉輝先生、劉再復教授及鄭愁予教授擔任評審。

《城市文學》的前身是早於1997年已出版的《城大文學》。當年創辦的目的是鼓勵校內師生投稿,培養校內愛好文藝的風氣。

文學與生活息息相關,文學創作既陶冶性靈,也是人生的反映,因此不局限某一專科的範圍。歷年「創作獎」的得主來自不同的系別,作品優秀,令人驚喜。

為了保存及典藏刋於《城市文學》及《城大文學》的文章,城大文康委員會圖書館合作建立「城市文學文庫」,讓城大成員和文學愛好者可在網上細心欣賞這些精采作品。

The former title of this magazine is CityU Literature which was first published in 1997. Its aim was to enhance interests in Chinese literary writing among CityU staff and students.

Literature is closely related to daily lives. Writing shapes one's personality and, in the meanwhile, is a reflection of one's life. Thus, it is not restricted to any discipline. Each year, winners came from different academic departments and their outstanding works have pleasantly surprised our readers.

To preserve and archive the articles published in City Literature and CityU Literature, the CityU Cultural and Sports Committee and the Library have jointly developed the City Literature Online for the university community and literature lovers to enjoy these excellent and inspiring articles online.
