Mary-Jane Newton was born in Goa in 1983, and spent the first years of her life in India. She subsequently grew up in Germany and England, and now grows up in Hong Kong. Mary-Jane’s work has been published in literary journals and anthologies in Asia. She regularly reads at live poetry events in Hong Kong. With a background in linguistics, communication and cultural studies, Mary-Jane aims always to meet her reader elsewhere, other than where words command us:beyond and beneath their meanings.
Her first poetry collection, Of Symbols Misused, was published by Proverse Hong Kong in March 2011.
Mary-Jane Newton (Of Symbols Misused) was part of a three writer panel, hosted by the Women in Publishing Society Hong Kong, Tuesday, 17 May, at the Hughes Room, Foreign Correspondents' Club, Central Hong Kong. The subject: "Three authors, three ways of getting published".
Mary-Jane Newton had a very successful launch of her first poetry collection, Of Symbols Misused, at the Hong Kong Festival Fringe, on 4 May, organised by the Hong Kong Poetry group, OutLoud.
