This Award is a writing competition hosted by the City University, and the competition in 2005/06 is open to students from all tertiary institutions in Hong Kong and Macau. Six well-known writers from overseas and Hong Kong acted as adjudicators, including Mr. John Chan, Mr. Chang Ta-chuan, Mr. Dong Qiao, Mr. Yip Fei, Professor Liu Zaifu and Professor Cheng Chou-yu.
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.
