About “One-Day Literary Writing Lodge in Hong Kong Voices”:
On Saturday 15 December 2018, the Department of English at Hong Kong Baptist University, Cha: An Asian Literary Journal and PEN Hong Kong co-organised “One-Day Literary Writing Lodge in Hong Kong English”. Over 30 students in Hong Kong participated in the day-long event. The top four poems at the Lodge, selected by the instructors of the day (Tammy Ho Lai-Ming, Akin Jeje, Collier Nogues and Eddie Tay), are published in the Eleventh Anniversary Issue of Cha. Tommy Hicks’s “The Traveller” is one of the four selected poems, and it is about his search for a sense of belonging.
Tommy Hicks is an aspiring writer currently studying at Delia Memorial School (Hip Wo). He chooses to express his art through words, not paint. He writes short stories and is working on a science-fiction novel, but his interests lie more in the scientific field than the artistic, and dreams of being a scientist one day.
