Hi, this is Karen. I'm a writer, editor and journalist from Hong Kong. I'm currently an Associate Editor at Asia Art Archive and Hong Kong correspondent for Reporters Sans Frontieres. I'm also a co-founding editor of Still / Loud, an online magazine about music and culture in Hong Kong. Previously, I was a senior reporter covering politics at Hong Kong Free Press

I’ve written features, essays and reviews for Al Jazeera, Artasiapacific, Hong Kong Review of Books and openDemocracy, while my poetry and creative non-fiction has been published in Cha: An Asian Literary JournalLARB China Channel and The Offing. In 2016, The Coffeelicious listed me as one of their favourite women writers.

I am a BA (Literary Studies, first class honours) and LLB graduate from the University of Hong Kong. My past lives include: guest critic for theatre site HKELD, writer/reviewer for The Underground HK, and consultant for PEN America's 71-page report, Writing on the Wallon the missing Causeway Bay booksellers.
