On December 24, the first Ye Shengtao Literary Awards announced that 19 writers have been singled out for nine awards. The awards categories are novels, novellas, short stories, essays, poetry, reportage, children’s literature, literary criticism and newcomers.

The Ye Shengtao Literary Awards started in June 2013. It received 82 literary entries and chose 25 works for the final competition. The final competition invited famous writers and critics to act as the jury to review the entries and choose 19 writers for the top prizes. The activity is also a warm-up for the fifth Jiangsu Purple Mountain Literary Awards.

The 19 winners consist of experienced writers, young writers and potential newcomers. Their works showcase the literary power of Suzhou. Compared with novellas and literary criticism, entries for novels, essays and children’s literature were highlighted for their artistic standards and were well received by the jury.

Suzhou’s literature has always seen balanced development of various literary branches and writers. The Ye Shengtao Literary Awards, as the first municipal literary awards, can further stimulate the creative consciousness of writers and create a harmonious and progressive creative atmosphere.
