This December, Cha: An Asian Literary Journal will turn eight years old. To mark the occasion, we are running a poetry contest that unashamedly focuses on the city which the journal calls home—Hong Kong. Send us poems that describe, praise, critique, interrogate, eulogise or curse Hong Kong and its history, grievances, politics, people, places, faces, traces.
Rules: Each poet can submit up to two poems (no more than 80 lines long each). Poems must be previously unpublished. Entry is free.
Closing date: 31 July 2015
