VOV.VN - Nguyen Quang Thieu, president of the Vietnam Writers' Association, has announced that he received a letter sent by the Nobel Committee asking him to select a Vietnamese nominee for the 2022 Nobel Prize in Literature.
This marks the first time that the Vietnam Writers’ Association (VWA) has received such an invitation from the Committee.
According to schedule, the nominee must be submitted to the Nobel committee before January 31.
Unfortunately, due to some technical issues, the VWA didn’t received the letter until February 17, meaning the deadline had passed.
Quang Thieu said he will still send a thank-you letter to the Nobel Committee and expressed hope that they send a further invitation next year.
