Congratulations to Chu Yan-wai Grace, a year-one student of Associate in Chinese Language and Literature, on winning the first runner up award in Fiction (Senior Group) of the 49th Youth Literary Awards. The award presentation ceremony was held on 5 February 2023 at Hong Kong Baptist University.

Grace's work "The Only Child" (《獨生的救贖》) is about the fate of a child and a chick. The story reflects the entanglements and conflicts as well as the gender inequality in a clan village. 

Founded in 1972, the Youth Literary Awards is one of the biggest annual literary events in Hong Kong. Inspired by her own life experience, Grace uses exquisite symbols and pithy writing to create an atmosphere full of vitality in her work. Congratulations once again to Grace.
