To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Hainan province and its status as one of the five special economic zones in China, a poetry festival has been planned.

The event will be held in April by the Hainan provincial government and Poem, a magazine of the Chinese Writers Association.

A poetry competition was also launched in Beijing on Nov 17 to collect poems focusing on Hainan province-related subjects.

Those whose poems are chosen will be invited to Hainan for a week in April and take part in a poetry recital.

The province, located in South China and known for its beautiful islands and beaches, has long been a popular tourist destination in China.
