The Hawaii Chinese Writers' Association

The Hawaii Chinese Writers’ Association (“HCWA”) is a non-profit organization established on October 18, 1997 in the U.S. by founder and Chairperson, Sai-Lin Wong 創會會長, 黃世連 (筆名黃河浪), with Chin-Tang Lo as Honorary Chairperson 名譽會長 羅錦堂.  The Association is now headed by current President, Yip Fong 會長  葉芳,  Vice President Lian Yun 副會長    連芸 and Vice President & Treasurer Celia Ko 副會長兼財務  高于晴. The Hawaii Chinese Writers’ Association’s mission is to compile and publish Chinese literary works by writers living in Hawaii and those worldwide; to promote the Chinese culture regardless of political, religious, or ethnic background; and to sponsor exchanges between Chinese writers throughout the world.

 

Throughout the past 20 years, The Hawaii Chinese Writers’ Association has published 88 editions of its literary newspaper, “Pearl Harbor”, two volumes of the first ever anthology of Chinese literary works by different members of the HCWA called “Blue Hawaii”, and two international conference proceedings named “Shaking Hands With The Pacific Ocean” and “Revisiting The Banyan Tree Hometown”.  The Association has also published a series of works by individual members. All of which have been added to the library collections of universities such as Harvard, Princeton, Oxford, Beijing University, Taiwan University and The Central Library of Hong Kong, among others.

 

The Hawaii International Conference on Global Chinese Literature in 2011,  which was hosted by The Hawaii Chinese  Writers’ Association and sponsored by the Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, co-sponsored by the Confucian Academy of Hong Kong, the Department of East Asian Languages & Literatures at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, the Department of Chinese Studies at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, the Research Society of Chinese Culture, the University of Hong Kong, the Department of Chinese at the University of Macau, the College of Literature at Beijing Normal University’s Zhuhai Campus, and the Hawaii Chuk Kai Tai Chi Club, fostered literary and cultural exchanges between prestigious conference guests from the United States, Canada, China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, and Macau, and was a great opportunity for participants to share their accumulated experiences of creating global Chinese literature and exploring the future of its development while promoting Chinese language and literature in Hawaii.  The Hawaii Chinese Writers’ Association received a Proclamation issued by Governor Neil Abercrombie, and Lieutenant Governor Brian Schatz of the State of Hawaii proclaiming August 21, 2011 as “Hawaii Chinese Writers’ Association U.S.A. Day”, and received a Certificate from the Hawaii State Legislature commending this conference as well.

 

The Hawaii International Seminar on Guan Di Culture and the 20th Anniversary Conference of The Hawaii Chinese Writers’ Association was held jointly by The Hawaii Chinese Writers’ Association and the Chuk-Kai Tai Chi Club on October 15, 2017 at the Ala Moana Hotel’s Ilima Room devoted to expanding, strengthening, and promoting international cultural exchange and propagating the culture of Guan Di.  This event was very successful and The House of Representatives of the Twenty-ninth Legislature of the State of Hawaii issued certificate to the two hosting organizations for promoting Chinese culture and literature in Hawaii and throughout the world, and extended its warmest aloha and best wishes for continued success in all future endeavors.
