The One-Day Literary Writing Lodge in Hong Kong Voices was held on December 15 at Hong Kong Baptist University. It was a day in which Hong Kong secondary school students were able to hone their writing skills and nurture their creative talent, and meet famed writers such as Akin Jeje and Collier Nogues who were there to offer advice and guidance.

It was an exciting poetry-writing experience sponsored by HKBU’s Faculty of Arts to inspire local students to use their voice and write from a Hong Kong perspective for a global audience. Below are the four winning poems from the day.
