International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong (IPNHK) is an award-winning biennial festival founded by renowned Chinese poet Bei Dao. Since its debut in 2009, IPNHK has become the most influential series of international poetry events in Asia. Following the enormous success of previous editions, IPNHK will invite thirty poets from different parts of the world to celebrate its tenth anniversary in Hong Kong as well as in ten Mainland cities. Poets include Ana Blandiana (Romania), Jan Wagner (Germany), Forrest Gander (United States), Ijeoma Umebinyuo (Nigeria), Sergio Raimondi (Argentina), K. Satchidanandan (India), Zheng Xiaoqiong (China) and others. The IPNHK box set collection includes chapbooks of the invited poets accompanied by English and Chinese translations in bilingual or trilingual formats.
