Short fiction has gone out of fashion in some parts of the world, displaced by ever-longer novels.  Here in Hong Kong, contemporary writers lean toward short works and poetry as a form of creative expression - is this a reaction to our lifestyles that are so time-poor?  Award-winning poet Luke Kennard is joined by local poets Tammy Ho and Sonia Wong for a lively exchange on the place of poetry in modern day literature in Hong Kong and further afield.  Moderated by Elbert Lee.
