HA NOI (VNS) — Vietnamese readers can create and express their love for Japanese fiction by joining the fan fiction (fanfic) contest launched nationwide with the theme "I Love Japanese Literature".

To celebrate Japanese Literature Week from December 24 to 31, the contest organisers require participants to send their writings in Vietnamese to the organising board of Nha Nam Publishing and Communications Company and Japan Foundation Centre for Cultural Exchange in Viet Nam before December 4.

Fanfic are stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work rather than by the original creator. They are written on the basis of parts of the original work. Most fanfic writers assume that their work is read primarily by other fans.

Within the contest framework, participants may create fanfic based on works of remarkable Japanese authors such as Haruki Murakami, Banana Yoshimoto, Ogawa Yoko and Higashino Keigo.

Writers of excellent works will receive awards at the opening ceremony of Japanese Literature Week. — VNS
