A warm welcome to Hong Kong Women in Publishing Society (WiPS).

We are an international group of women based, or previously based, in Hong Kong who are either involved in or interested in some aspect of publishing. We’re writers, poets, artists, photographers, illustrators, editors, proofreaders, copywriters, graphic designers, journalists, publishers, or quite simply people who enjoy the written word.

Come join us and meet like-minded people at our events. Engage with our speakers. Join our Facebook group for more publishing related news, job opportunities and projects before they hit the classifieds. Or, just come along to our regular social networking evenings.

As members of our society, you can increase your visibility by being listed in our MEMBERS’ DIRECTORY. You also have the opportunity to be featured online in:

  • MEMBERS’ SHOWCASE – a platform where members can display a newly released book or exhibited artwork
  • WOMAN AT WORK – a chance for members to share their creative journeys, introduce their work or their businesses, and in doing so inspire others
  • PODCASTS – an opportunity for members to describe face to face how they’ve arrived at where they are in their careers and to promote their work

If you’ve always wanted to see your name in print, now’s your chance. WiPS members have the opportunity to be published in IMPRINT, our annual anthology written and produced entirely by members (and sold at major bookshops in Hong Kong).

“Just received my copy of IMPRINT 20. It’s a lovely production, beautifully illustrated, and the cover is stunning.” – Gillian Kew, Imprint contributor

“[While] easing back into solitary [covid] confinement, I was really pleased to receive my IMPRINT 20 and love how it looks and feels, the paper feels more down-to-earth and homey. Congratulations on another wonderful issue!” – Maureen Tai, Writer and Imprint contributor

Imprint

The 20th issue of Women in Publishing Society’s annual anthology, Imprint, was released in January 2022 and offers an exciting collection of new fiction, essays, memoir, poetry, travelogue, commentary, humour and artwork from almost FIFTY of our members. Celebrating 20 years of the anthology and 30 years of WiPS, this latest, newly designed issue makes a GREAT and affordable Hong Kong souvenir present for family and friends.
