Hiya, this is Karen. I'm a journalist and writer based in Hong Kong. I'm currently a senior reporter at Hong Kong Free Press. I'm also a co-founding editor of online music and culture zine Still / Loud, and the Hong Kong desk editor at ArtAsiaPacific.
I've written for Al Jazeera, Hong Kong Review of Books, openDemocracy and LARB China Channel. I was a consultant for PEN America's 71-page report, Writing on the Wall, on the missing Causeway Bay booksellers.
I previously covered the local music scene for The Underground HK, reviewed performing arts for HKELD as a guest critic, and served as the editor of University of Hong Kong's multimedia publication hKUDOS. I was also a contributor at University of Glasgow's Qmunicate, where my essay on the 2014 Umbrella Movement made the cover story.
I graduated from the University of Hong Kong with first class honours in BA (Literary Studies), and later I obtained an LLB degree at the same school.
You can say hello to me on twitter @karenklcheung.
