HKBU Century Club Sponsors the Citywide English Poetry Competition 2021

Event Information

HKBU Century Club sponsored the Citywide English Poetry Competition, which was jointly organised by Department of English Language and Literature, Department of Humanities and Creative Writing and the International Writers’ Workshop of HKBU, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Poetry Festival Foundation. On 28 May, alumna Dr. Helen Kwok (Communication), Secretary of the Club, delivered the opening remarks at the online Award Presentation Ceremony of the Competition.

The Club has, through the “Century Club Sponsorship Scheme”, given support to the above-mentioned competition, which helps encourage undergraduate students to embark on the road of creative writing and provide them with an opportunity to share their interest in poetry through the Competition. This year, the Competition attracted an impressive number of submissions across the eight UGC-funded universities in Hong Kong. To commend the outstanding students' works and publicise these poems to the wider community, a digital anthology version incorporating the winning poems of the past three years of the Competition will be curated.

For the purpose of providing financial support for teaching, research and student development projects that would contribute to the betterment and sustainable growth of the University, HKBU Century Club has established the Century Club Sponsorship Scheme.
