Abstract

Keynote article
Historically, Hong Kong writing is a thoroughfare that has sprouted many spatial and linguistic byways out of the territory that once nurtured it. Its provisional terminus is a nebulous, but increasingly populated creative diaspora. How then should we approach the prospect of such a post 2019–2020 Hong Kong protests creators’ diaspora? Should our discursive tone be hagiographic, heroic, or realistic? Is there a real prospect of a durable creative exile community taking hold?
