15 December, Workshop Co-Facilitator, HKBU Writing Lodge. One-Day Literary Writing Lodge in Hong Kong Voices. The Department of English Language and Literature at the Hong Kong Baptist University is joining forces with the award-winning Cha: An Asian Literary Journal and PEN Hong Kong to organise a very special One-Day Literary Writing Lodge in Hong Kong Voices (Saturday 15 December 2018). Some of the best-known writers in Hong Kong will team up with linguistics and literature professors to create an exciting daylong writing experience for higher secondary school students. The idea of the Writing Lodge is to encourage youngsters to write authentically in their own Hong Kong voices in a way that is also intelligible and expressive to a global readership. This is likely to be the next frontier of English literary writing in Hong Kong, and we are enthusiastic to help nurture the best writing talents from among our city’s young people.
