2. just back last night from my short stay in my native place in china (where google is still unavailable), i got an email notifying me that i had been included among the prize winners of the 2018 Naji Naaman's International Literary [Honour] Prize, offered by a Lebanon-based organisation.
among 2,371 competing authors from 66 countries, 64 turn out the winners of 4 different categories. although i have been nominated as many as 10 times for the prestigious american Pushcart Prize, i am never among the lucky ones.
3. also, i received an email/award from the Sons of Camus Writers International Journal (autumn 2017 issue 13) for my poetry collection China Theme.
for record, here are the details about all the prizes and net nominations i have won::
