Hong Kong Protesting

A Cha Project


This website, a Cha project, is dedicated to publishing a diverse range of works about the ongoing Hong Kong protests. Cha, founded in 2007, is the first & only Hong Kongbased international Asia-focused online literary journal.


Poetry, fiction, memoirs, essays, translations, drama, reviews, photography & art, and more. We would love to be surprised.


Please send your works, either previously published or new, to editor@hkprotesting.com for consideration. We will contact those whose works have been selected within one week.
