The 5th edition of The Script Road – Macau Literary Festival Short Story Competition is accepting texts in Chinese, Portuguese and English. The stories should be delivered at the premises of the newspaper Ponto Final, at Rua de Camilo Pessanha, Nº 21, Macau, up to 8pm of November 30, 2016.
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. Authors Chan Koonchung, Ricardo Adolfo and Bengt Ohlsson – all guests of the Festival in its 2016 edition, last March – will be the juries for this 2016 edition.
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 the 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 6th edition, in March 2017.
