For over a decade now, Elizabeth Campbell Books has represented Proverse Hong Kong’s diverse collection of authors in a variety of genres. We bring their books in directly from Hong Kong, and this is one of the few places in Canada you can find their titles.
Every year, Proverse has a competition for poetry and prose. It’s a great way for them to find new talent, and for budding authors to break into the literary world. This year, we thought we’d help them promote their prize. Please read about it below, and feel welcome to visit the links to submit your entry/entries.
Hope you win!
