Another Korean Literature (Short Review) Contest! Win up to $500 on Amazon

Gold TrophyTo repeat:

Win up to $500 on Amazon

Sure… you were scared of the recent video contest – there’s a reason you live in a house without any mirrors.^^

And the previous essay contest was about older literature.. only of interest only to wrinkled academics… but this one.. THIS ONE, gives you the chance to write about awesome modern Korean fiction, and be a winner.

(Well, odds are I’ll win, Barry Welsh will come in second, and some dude from Australia named Tony – freed from the camera – will probably come in third)

Still.. read an awesome book…

Here are just two of the best ones

But to me, every single one of the 15 listed books is worth reading.  Goodreads is hosting the contest, and I’ll let LTI Korea explain what the deal is:

Dear Friends, our last K-Lit Review Contest this year has finally opened, this time on!

The topic works are 15 works from The Library of Korean Literature series, published by Dalkey Archive Press in collaboration with the Literature Translation Institute of Korea.
