As you may know, the University of Macau celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. To coincide with this theme, the ELC is thrilled to launch:  i) a Creative Writing Contest (1-30 April now: 1 April to 9 May) and  ii) a Creative Writing Workshop (31 March now: 11 April).


1. Creative Writing Contest

To showcase your creativity, you are invited to write a piece of work in any genre that is relevant to our overarching theme – UM’s 40th birthday. The contest is divided into the following three stages:

  1. Submission: candidates will submit their writing on Moodle (now: 1 April to 9 May).
  2. Selection: tutors will select the best 6 pieces of written work.
  3. Recital event:  The selected winners present their story in any forms they prefer at the award ceremony on 12 May.

Prizes are given to the winner, first runner up, second runner up and 3 honourable mentions. Prizes include coupons from the book store.

All UM students are welcome to participate. Please note that collaborative (pairs/groups) work is NOT accepted. 


For registration and detailed information, please refer to the poster.

All work must be submitted on/before 9 May (Sunday), much appreciated! We look forward to receiving all the great content.
