Launch of Hong Kong Writers Circle Anthology 《Hong Kong Writers Circle 文集》發佈會
The Hong Kong Writers’ Circle is a local group of English-language authors with eclectic interests. The group runs critique groups, workshops, social events and, every year, produces an anthology. This year’s Coming to Our Senses includes short stories and poems by over twenty authors. Come and meet the authors! They will be reading short extracts from their contributions, and it’s always fun with the circle.
Hong Kong Writers’ Circle由一群本地英語作家創立，以其作家文風、題材等不拘一格聞名。組織多年來舉辦各類型文評小組、工作坊以至社會活動，並於每年出版一本文集，收錄一眾作家的作品。本年，文集以《Coming to Our Senses》為主題，囊括超過二十多位作家所創作的短篇小說及詩歌。他們亦將在發佈會上朗讀自己作品的選段，與大家分享他們的創作成果。我們誠邀你與一眾傑出本地英語作家見面，加入他們具啟發性又不失趣味的交流。
