Applications for the story competition on Yunus Emre started

Due to the 700th anniversary of his death, 2021 has been declared as the year of commemoration of Yunus Emre by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). With the Presidential circular, it has been decided that 2021 is the Year of Yunus Emre and Turkish language.
Istanbul Gelisim University, Faculty of Economics, Administrative and Social Sciences, Turkish Language and Literature Department organizes a short story competition, which makes students think about how to live by taking Yunus Emre as a guide during the global epidemic.

THEMES: RESPECT, PATIENCE AND SELF-SACRIFICE

Short stories to be written on the themes of "tolerance, patience, self-sacrifice and love" from Yunus Emre's teachings, one of the cornerstones of Turkish language and civilization, are accepted within the scope of the competition. The competition will be open to 12th grade students of secondary education institutions who apply with their school IDs.

In the written statement made by the university, the following words were emphasized about the competition:

“We chose the short story as the literary genre. Standing out in contemporary literature, the short story requires using words economically in number and rich in meaning. Another aspect of Yunus Emre that stands out as a poet is his mastery in the art of concise speech, which is called Sehl-i mümteni, which seems easy but is difficult when trying to apply. The experience of writing short stories will be useful in understanding Yunus Emre in this context as well.”
The deadline for submission of stories is September 30, and applications are made via the university's website. The winners of the competition will be rewarded with cash prizes.
