Enjoy Reading ● The Story of Travelers
Life is often regarded as a journey that is filled with happiness, growth, love, fear, and sometimes hardship. It is a remarkable
process during which we discover more about ourselves, others and the world we live in. Similarly, when we read and write,
we are concerned with self-discovery just as we are when we explore our dreams.
As a continuation of the Reading Promotion Programme in the year 2010 – 2011, the Library is launching a Writing Promotion Programme in this semester. As one of a highlighted programme, Shanghai University of Finance & Economics (SUFE) Library and CityU Library are pleased to announce the writing competition “Enjoy Reading ．The Story of Travelers”. The competition opens to all SUFE and CityU students. Students are encouraged to write from their traveling experiences.
Reading, thinking, writing and dreaming are closely intertwined with life and its journey, so share with us your stories either on a travelling experience or a reflection on yours life’s journey.
