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

We are a group of women based in Hong Kong (or who have a HK connection) who are either  involved   in or interested in some aspect of publishing. We're writers, writers-to-be, poets, artists, illustrators, editors, proofreaders, copywriters, graphic       designers, journalists, publishers, fiction or non-fiction authors or quite simply women who wish to become involved in some way with the publishing world.

WiPS brings together a dynamic group of publishing professionals working in all fields related to writing, journalism, photography, advertising, design, public relations, electronic and print publishing, television, radio and other media. You do not have to be working in publishing to be part of WiPS -- you just have to be interested.
