Established this past September, PEN Hong Kong brings together writers, editors, publishers and journalists in the HKSAR to promote creative and free expression. Founding members of this new chapter of PEN International Jason Ng, Bao Pu, Tammy Ho, Ilaria Maria Sala and Mishi Saran discuss its mission, goals, and concerns over the deteriorating freedom of expression in Hong Kong, at a critical time when, with the disappearances of booksellers and unresolved cases of violence against journalists, interference in media and publishing is increasingly brazen.
