Get published in IMPRINT

The Annual Anthology of Women in Publishing Society Hong Kong

Each year, WiPS invites its members to submit examples of their best work for publication in our annual anthology, IMPRINT. This year, dozens of talented writers, poets, photographers, illustrators and editors took part. Most are based in Hong Kong; while many are now scattered throughout Asia, Europe, America and Australia.

Drawing on a smorgasbord of specialities and perspectives, the diverse group cooks up a rich and satisfying anthology every time.

Keep IMPRINT handy so you can easily dip into it. You’ll find new and stimulating fiction, essays, memoir, poetry, travelogues, commentary, artwork and humour – and more.

The Members’ Directory, formerly included in the back of IMPRINT but now moved online to better keep it up to date, serves as a valuable tool for those looking to recruit talent or simply to network. Here you will find contact details and profiles for all the contributing authors, as well as for every other member of Women in Publishing.
