The 8th edition of The Script Road – Macau Literary Festival Short Story Competition is now accepting texts in Chinese, Portuguese and English. The stories should be delivered at the premises of the newspaper Ponto Final, at Travessa do Bispo, No. 1C, 6th Floor, Macau, up to 8pm of November 30, 2019; or by email to email@example.com.
The competition will have similar rules to the ones applied in previous years. The winners (one for each language – Chinese, Portuguese and English) will be chosen by writers who visited The Script Road before, with a pre-selection being done by a jury composed by representatives of the festival’s organization and other invited members.
The Macau Literary Festival keeps the MOP 10.000 prize money for each of the winners and, as in previous editions, awarded texts will be published in a book – in three languages – alongside with the ones written by the authors who visited Macau during the latest edition of The Script Road.
The rules for the competition are available at www.thescriptroad.org. The contest continues to be open to all participants who write in Chinese, Portuguese or English. All short stories must be somehow about Macau.
The next book of The Script Road Short Stories and Other Writings collection will be published and presented during Macau Literary Festival 9th edition, in March 2020.
