Suna Kıraç Story Competition book digitalized
Pera Museum brings together Suna Kıraç Story Competition and readers on its website. The competition, which has been organized by the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation and Koç School since 2008, aims to introduce new writers to Turkish literature.
Named after Suna Kıraç, one of the founders of Pera Museum and Koç School, the competition encourages high school students to think creatively, fictionalize and express themselves with specific themes that can be interpreted abstractly and perceptibly.
Students were allowed to write stories about subjects such as borders, sleep, voice, street, mask, journey and alienation, while the competition's main theme was "house."
