The Hong Kong Young Readers Festival is a 12-day event that takes place in schools and public spaces around Hong Kong. Bringing together a diverse and dynamic group of local and international writers, illustrators, comic creators, and poets dedicated to the art of telling inspirational stories to kids and young adults, the Festival is a vibrant arm of the fast-growing and world-class Hong Kong International Literary Festival.

Since the YRF’s inception nine years ago, we have worked with over 30,000 primary and secondary school students in Hong Kong. We want to motivate and inspire young people to engage with all aspects of the written word. Sustained reading not only offers children the opportunity to improve their English language skills and vocabulary, it provides a crucial gateway to cultural exchange and exposes young people to diverse topics and current affairs.  

We are a not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to bringing the best in the literary arts to Hong Kong.
