Welcome to our 2023 multi-language contest!
In 2019, Latter-day Saint writers from around the world and a team of volunteer judges and translators contributed to our first multi-language contest. This year, we've gathered a team again to bring you more new works from international voices. Over the next two weeks, we'll share a new piece every day in Portuguese, Spanish, Tagalog, Japanese, or English. All pieces will be available in the original language and English translation.
The schedule is as follows:
Mon, 10 July: “A Espera” (The Waiting) by Suzana Mcauchar
Tues, 11 July: "Os Cinco Anjos do Éden" (The Five Angels of Eden) by Claudio Antão Ribeiro de Oliveira
Wed, 12 July: “Auxese” (An Exercise in Hyperbole) by Ana Claudia de Souza de Oliveira Thur, 13 July: “Além da Visão” (Beyond the Vision) by Edgar Farinon
