English in Hong Kong: More Than a Colonial Residue — Louise Ho is considered the leading English-language poet in Hong Kong, happy to work in a language that might be thought a colonial residue, and well versed in its poetic traditions, often making use and sometimes making fun of them. She launches her collected poems, Incense Tree, for the launch of the inaugural HKU Poetry Prize. She talks with Michael Hollington about her poetry. This event will be followed by an announcement and details about the inaugural HKU Poetry Prize.
Louise Ho’s poetry was published in issue #4 of Cha.––
Cha excitedly announces the launch of Not A Muse. Not A Muse is edited by Viki Holmes (Cha contributor) and Kate Rogers and published by Haven Books.
