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 become part of WiPS - you just have to be interested.

WiPS is very sad to learn of the passing of journalistic legend, Clare Hollingworth at age 105. Clare was for many years a patron of WiPS, and in the Society's early years spoke to members at the FCC on several occasions. She was a remarkable inspiration to all who had the pleasure to know her.
