In an article entitled “Language Policy, ‘Asia’s World City’ and Anglophone Hong Kong Writing”, published in Interventions: International Journal of Postcolonial Studies, Professor Elaine Ho of the University of Hong Kong has the following to say about Cha:
- Cha “remains the only online creative writing journal that claims a Hong Kong base”. (p. 435)
- Cha has a “[high] proportion of Asian and Asian-based contributors […] with occasional appearances by Asian diasporic artists in the West and also Anglo-Americans. It instantiates Hong Kong’s recognition of English as an inter-Asia creative medium and Hong Kong as an Asian platform of creative interactivity in words and images”. (p. 437)
We are very grateful that Cha is mentioned in the article.
