A new anthology of short stories about Macau, published in three languages (Chinese, Portuguese and English), will be released during the Festival. The Script Road – Macau Literary Festival was founded in 2012 by local newspaper Ponto Final — a periodical currently celebrating its 25th anniversary — and is based in Macau Special Administrative Region (MSAR). The Festival began as the first and largest gathering of literati from China and the Portuguese-Speaking Countries ever organized in the world. In recent years, the Festival has gained in popularity, becoming an international event that welcomes renowned writers, publishers, translators, journalists, musicians, filmmakers and visual artists from various geographies and nationalities.
Eric Fok, the internationally known Macau’s artist is the author of The Script Road – Macau Literary Festival’s 6th edition official image. His work embodies tradition and modernity, combining his signature with the festival’s theme and identity.
