Jeff Zroback and Tammy Ho came up with the idea of an online journal two years ago. They noticed that, despite anabundance of English online journals around the world, there were none in Hong Kong.
Zroback, an editor, and Ho, a writer with editorial experience,s et up the city's first online literary journal which focuses on Asia, Cha.
Cha publishes poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, drama, reviews, photography and art.
"Our only requirements are the pieces be about Asian topics or by writers who are living in or are from Asia," they said.
"We are interested in writing on a wide variety of subjects as long as it's well-written and expresses something engaging."
Many of the contributors are recognised and published authors, but Cha's amateur writers have found more work as a result of publicising their work on the journal.
"We are interested insupporting young writers and new voices. We're certain there are many talented young authors, photographers, and artists in the region. And we hope Cha can provide themwith a platform."
