On Saturday I had the great pleasure of addressing by Zoom the winners of the Writing Section of the annual Hong Kong Arts Symposium competition, hosted by Chinese International School! Along with two other judges (YA writer Chris Maden and journalist Ophelia Wang), we had the immensely difficult task of choosing the winners from a pool of very talented writers from schools across Hong Kong in two age groups: 9 to 12 and 13 to 18. Here are the winners in this section:

All the judges agreed that the standard of entries was exceptional, with the winners displaying considerable maturity as writers, as well as raw talent, empathy and passion. It is my fond hope that they all continue to write prolifically. I confidently expect to see their names mentioned at literary events in the future :)!

Congratulations to all the students who took part in the competition, which also included Visual Arts and Photography. And congratulations also to Reina Lim and the rest of the committee of students who ran the competition and the event with great skill. It was a pleasure to work with you all!

Here are some photos taken at the event, including prize-awarding, workshops and prizes from the sponsors and donors. (Oswald Ox and I were happy to be included :)).
