Launching Apostrophe!

Fresh from launching A Book of Changes at the 2023 Hong Kong International Literary Festival, the Hong Kong Writers Circle opened submissions for its new quarterly online magazine Apostrophe – on APRIL 1st – no joke! The name is derived from the irony that a bunch of so-called writers omitted the apostrophe when registering the Society. Technically, we should be the Hong Kong Writers’ Circle, but we are not. We are the Hong Kong Writers Circle. This grammatical faux pas has split the Circle into two feuding semicircles: those of us who know what an apostrophe is and how to use one and those of us who do’nt.

I am apparently Art Director because nobody trusts me with an apostrophe. Unlike the writers who are required to be either residents or former residents of Hong Kong to submit, artists can submit from anywhere in the world and are not limited to only submitting one piece. Submissions for the first edition close April 30!
