We are a group of UWC graduates who would like to solicit support (in terms of contributors, writers and editors of articles, coordinators on administration and marketing) from fellow UWCers like you on publishing a book on our common UWC experiences.
The primary objective of the book is, through recording and publication of personal experiences, to share with fellow UWCers, parents and others the benefits of UWC education. We also hope to demonstrate how our alumni do contribute to society what we have gained through UWC education, that was made possible only with the generosity of donors and sponsors.
Having made enquiries of book publishers and given the limited resources available to us given that this is a private (as opposed to official) project, we are aiming at limited circulation of the book in Hong Kong initially, and overseas thereafter (in planning stage). We intend to donate profits (if any) from the distribution of the book to fund scholarships or projects of LPC UWC. [As we do not expect substantial funds to be raised through this book, given its limited scale, we feel that it is more manageable to focus on LPC UWC at this stage.]
The book will be bilingual (Chinese or English). We invite those of you who are interested in contributing to the book to contact us on or before 31 August 2008. Other forms of contribution are also welcome.
Further information regarding this project can be found in www.uwcbook.blogspot.com .
We look to your support (in terms of contributors, writers and editors of articles, coordinators on administration and marketing) to help make this publication a reality – let this be you contribution as well as ours towards advancing the UWC movement. We look forward to hearing from you.
