After The Storm: The 17th Anthology by the Hong Kong Writer’s Circle
For a varied and unique perspective on English-language writing in Hong Kong, don’t miss the launch of the Hong Kong Writers’ Circle’s seventeenth annual anthology. After the Storm considers the aftermath of real or imagined storms. These works of fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction, whether set in Hong Kong or elsewhere, delve into the emotional, psychological, and personal aftermath of storms, natural and otherwise. Some of the storms are sudden and visceral; others take time to build; some are gentle and others violent; some happen in a teacup and others across the solar system, but all explore the same theme . The launch will feature readings by many of this year’s contributors, and the chance to ask them about their works.
For more than twenty years the Hong Kong Writers Circle (HKWC) has been supporting English-language creative writing. HKWC holds critique groups, workshops, readings of works-in-progress, and anthologies filled with short stories, poetry and, now, creative non-fiction.
