    the creators of different literary genres from varied socia l backgrounds. It contains categories for writers of advanced age and youth group, and accepts genres in prose, poetry, short story and theater plays. Submissions of graphic novel, as the organizational committee emphasizes the correlation between image and texts are also accepted. This year, in light of recent development in both the society and the creative industry, the committee also accepts submissions in literary journalism. We strongly encourage all passionate
    and dedicated writers to participate.
    Penmanship, New Resident Literary Achievements
    Spotlighted in New Taipei City
    This year also sees the fifth year of “Word Player”award, which promotes writing with one’s own hand, and encourages writers to reconnect with the sensation of penholding.
    Last year, the committee received 1,088 entries from the communities. Literary heavyweights, including Lin Huang- Zhong and Chen Xin- Hui, were invited to the
    judging panel. Sixty-five highly compelling pieces of life sketch were selected. This year, no restriction is placed on the creative premises of the elementary and junior high
    school groups. For the adult entrants, the theme is restricted to “travel writing within New Taipei City.” It is the hope of the committee that the restrictions would ensure the
    creation of more original writing.
    “New Taipei City New Resident Literary Award” has received much praise since its inauguration last year. At present, 540,000 new residents live in the City. When one’s
    own memory meets life in Taiwan, a unique life experience is bound to be had. This year, we continue this cultural tradition. Submissions for the Chinese Prose category
    are restricted to writings in the Chinese language. For the Non-Chinese Prose category, writings in languages such as English, Japanese, Korean, Burmese, Pilipino, Bahasa
    Indonesia, Thai and Khmer are accepted. The ability to write in one’s own mother tongue will allow for a freer expression, and purer snapshots of life.
    Literary creation: a Bittersweet Quest for Treasure
    The visual representation of the “2019 New Taipei City Literary Prize” has combined three design elements into one. It has considered the theme of “word collector,” a
    common element shared by the three awards. Here, literary creation is similar to a quest for treasure. A broad and diverse literary world is uncovered through the hints and
    precious collectibles laid out by words. The words piece together the outline and image of the New Taipei City, making the city a home of literature. Submissions are accepted now through July 15. There are three awards and fifteen categories, totaling TWD$1.78
    million, with the single highest reward up to TWD$ 150,000. Apart from the awards, New Taipei City Cultural Bureau will publish a collection of all selected works, which will be
    launched in the 2020 Taipei City International Book Fair. The committee will organize a series of activities including the literary salon, inviting winners to discuss their writings.
    This is a unique opportunity for all writers for the creation of the pinnacle of the New Taipei City literature. Please visit our website for more information.
