Abel Han Song (Year 4, BA in English Language and Literature)Abel For Abel, A is red, B is green, C is blue and D is orange. The hardest question for him is “where are you from?”. His hometowns include Hubei, Hebei, Liaoning, Hainan Island and probably more in the future.

Daniel Ng Chun Lung Daniel Ng(Year 4, BA in English Language and Literature) Daniel started writing poetry at Linfield College during the 2014–15 spring semester. He was taught and inspired by poets such as Lex Runciman, Joe Wilkins and Mary Szybist. He hates the word “if” and humans’ weakness in using this word.

Emily Chow Shun Man
(Graduate, BA in English Language and Literature)Emily Emily is now in the third year of her PhD studies at Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her research interests include Anglophone African literature and post-colonial literature. She is conducting research on the Zimbabwean writer Dambudzo Marechera. The idea of “serendipity” captivates her – not being governed by any boundaries or norms but infused with the exquisiteness of enlightenment, randomness, and limitlessness.
EdgeGeorge Lam Ka-Kwok
(Graduate, MA in Literary and Comparative Studies) George has been experimenting with free verse, the sonnet, pantoum, haiku and other poetic genres while working on the craft of poetry writing over the past few years. He currently resides in Shenzhen.

GraceGrace Wong Hiu Yan (Year 4, BA in English Language and Literature) Grace loves the smell of old books and prefers printed pages over electronic ones. She would rather be witty and die young rather than be unintelligent and live forever. She would like “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” to be played at her funeral, though she has yet to come across a favourite version.

PamelaPamela Wong Wai Yi (Year 2, BA in English Language and Literature) Pamela was one of the finalists in the HKBU English Poetry Competition in 2014. She reveals her emotional world through poetry.  She really hates when people ask her questions like “Why do you have to be so diligent/hard-working/independent.etc”. She simply loves what she is learning and enjoys her time in the English Department at HKBU. Besides, what’s wrong with being serious about life?
