You wouldn't believe what I'd just heard ...

Young Post's Summer Story competition is here again, so let your imagination run free! Whether it's a great adventure, a strange encounter or a fun day among friends - start writing it.

This year's theme is: "You wouldn't believe what I'd just heard ..."

Remember, you don't have to limit your storyline to summer holidays or even the summer. Your work must be between 1,800 and 2,000 words, and set in Hong Kong.

Every Saturday in July and August, fiction by nine finalists chosen by our judge will be published with illustrations by our artists. All finalists will receive a certificate from Young Post.

The best three entries will share HK$3,000 worth of Dymocks vouchers. The overall winner will be interviewed by Young Post and featured on our cover.

Send your original, captivating entries to by the deadline by 23:59 on June 10 the NEW EXTENDED deadline of 23:59 on June 14.

Put "Summer Fiction" in the subject field. Include your name, age, school, phone number and a Jpeg headshot of yourself, which will be published with your story if selected.
