Abstract

In this short talk I will draw upon some of the preliminary observations of my ongoing research on literary texts (short stories, creative nonfiction and poems) published in a local, leading English - language newspaper, South China Morning Post (1903 -), in Hong Kong in the early twentieth century in order to highlight its role in facilitating, and in many instances allowing for, the publication of diverse literary texts that engage with topical issues in colonial Hong Kong and the surrounding region. While I will discuss how it contributed to the formation and development of a journalistic — and to a certain extent literary — network within and beyond Hong Kong of the time, I will also reflect upon its limitation, especially in relation to questions of readership and circulation.
