About the event

In this English-language poetry writing workshop, participants will be briefly introduced to the short story 'Stone' in Bison, a book of ecological stories by the Hong Kong writer Ng Hui Bun recommended by One City One Book this year. Participants will then compose their own poems around natural objects like stones, shells, or leaves. While participants are encouraged to collect and bring their own objects to write about, a selection will also be provided. This workshop is family-friendly.

One City One Book Hong Kong is a community reading initiative by The Department of Literature and Cultural Studies, EdUHK. Each year, we encourage as many people as possible to read and discuss a featured book. Our aim is to promote literature, reading, and civic engagement.  

Dr. Collier Nogues, who enjoys outdoor writing, is the Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. She is the author of two poetry collections, and her work appears in the 2023 volume Where Else: An International Hong Kong Poetry Anthology (Verve Poetry Press, UK). She is experienced in teaching community poetry workshops for adults and school-aged students in Hong Kong and overseas. She has partnered with the Education Bureau to bring creative writing into Hong Kong English classrooms. Her favorite thing to do is write outdoors.
