Christian Creative Writing Prize awarded to 18 plays

The list of winners of the Second Genesis Creative Writing Award has been revealed with 17 authors.

The Genesis Creative Writing Award was founded by the Genesis Chinese Writing Ministry Institute or GCWMI. The first Genesis Creative Writing Award was held in 2020. Although the whole world was deeply influenced by COVID-19 at this time, the sponsor still received over 400 contest entries. They were from Mainland China, Taiwan from China, Hong Kong, America, etc. The contest’s mission is to spread the culture of faith, discover excellent works, and promote the writing skill of believers. It is hoped that the level of creative writing of all believers can be enhanced by hosting this annual event.

This year, six winners wrote one paper for the first prize, one paper for the winning prize, and four excellent papers for the Bible Stories, Short Stories, and Individual Essays categories.
