WiPS Short Story Competition for Young Writers

Unfortunately we will not be holding our Short Story Competition for Young Writers in 2019. Please check back on our website or Facebook page in the summer of 2020 for information about our next competition theme and deadline. In the mean time, please enjoy the work of our most recent winners of the competition.

Past Winners 

The theme of the 2018 competition was “Our Green Planet”. Entries came from an array of schools across Hong Kong, providing stories that were highly imaginative in both content and genre choice. This was Women in Publishing Society’s eighteenth student writing competition.

We thank the judges, WiPS members Celia Claase, Barbara Gregor and Janet Mann, for once again lending their expertise to selecting the best stories from among so many entries. The winning stories are featured here in Imprint.

The winners received cash prizes from WiPS to the value of HK$1,000, HK$600 and HK$400 respectively. Thank you also to Bookazine for generously providing goodie bags of books to each of the winners.

Congratulations to all the young aspiring writers who took part!
