In collaboration with Health in Action, a Hong Kong charity that promotes community health and wellbeing through the empowerment of the underprivileged, Cha is publishing a special section of poetry on the theme of “Distance” in its June 2016 issue.
The publication of the special section will coincide with Health in Action’s Refugee Week Art Movement (week of 20 June 2016) to raise awareness for asylum seekers and refugees in Hong Kong. (Note: 20 June 2016 is World Refugee Day.)
Please send your submissions (no more than three previously unpublished poems) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 May 2016. Subject line: “Distance—Your Name”. The editors of the section are Cha’s co-editor Tammy Ho Lai-Ming and consulting editor Reid Mitchell.
Writers (particularly those in Hong Kong) who are interested in collaborating with refugees can also contact us for more information.
