#HaveASafeJourney Contest

Stories can cause deep influence and impressions. There is a pressing need to apply this literary art in promoting awareness about road safety.

" Literature, as a form of intellectual culture, has the potential to both, entertain and educate. A story can expose readers to different places, time periods, viewpoints and cultures. Readers can gain experiences through literature they would never have access to in ordinary life. #HASJ is a project to apply literary art to capture the imagination and depict the lives of others to increase readers' ability to empathize with others. "
