Mary-Jane Newton
ImageBorn in Goa to a Serbian mother and German father, Mary-Jane Newton spent the first years of her life in India. She subsequently grew up in Germany and England, and now grows up in Hong Kong. With a background in linguistics, communication and cultural studies, it is her aim, always, to meet her reader elsewhere, other than where words command us: beyond and beneath their meanings. Newton is married and works as an editor. She is a committee member of the Women in Publishing Society, Hong Kong and regularly reads at Poetry OutLoud events. Her first collection of poetry, Of Symbols Misused, will be published by Proverse Hong Kong in March 2011. [Read 1 2 3]
