Hi, I'm Karen. I'm a writer, editor, and sometimes journalist from Hong Kong.
I currently edit essays on contemporary art for Asia Art Archive and monitor the press freedom situation in Hong Kong as a correspondent for Reporters Without Borders. Previously, I was a senior reporter at Hong Kong Free Press.
I’ve written essays and features on Hong Kong politics for Foreign Policy, the New York Times, CNN, New Statesman, and others. My poetry and creative non-fiction have been published in Cha: An Asian Literary Journal, LARB China Channel, and The Offing. Sometimes I review art shows for ArtAsiaPacific and interview local musicians for Still / Loud.
I hold a BA in Literary Studies (first class honours) and LLB from the University of Hong Kong.
I may be available for writing commissions and Chinese-to-English translation projects. A more complete portfolio of my writing is available upon request. I’m reluctantly active on twitter: @karenklcheung. You can also find me on Medium and Tinyletter.
