HKBU Century Club Sponsors HKBU Century Club Citywide English Poetry Competition

HKBU Century Club sponsored the HKBU Century Club Citywide English Poetry Competition, which was co-organised by Department of English Language and Literature, Department of Humanities and Creative Writing, and the International Writers’ Workshop at HKBU as well as the Hong Kong Poetry Festival Foundation. On 28 April, alumna Dr. Helen Kwok, Secretary of the Club, represented the Club to give the Opening Remarks and present the awards at its Award Ceremony.

The Club’s sponsorship allowed students to hone and share their poetry, and helped brand HKBU as a home for creative writing. The competition attracted a record of over 120 entries from students across all of the eight UGC-funded universities in Hong Kong this year and HKBU Creative and Professional Writing student Liang Yanfeng won the first place with her work “The Last Night Before Lunar New Year”.

For the betterment and sustainable growth of the University, HKBU Century Club has established the Century Club Sponsorship Scheme since 2008 to provide financial support to academic or student development projects annually. For more information, please click here.
