Gloria Luk


Gloria Luk, Chinese Canadian, is a writer, editor and teacher in Hong Kong and Canada.  She earned a Master’s degree (Honors) in English Literature from the University of Calgary, whose English Department is a cradle for Canadian creative writers.  She was one of the editors of its leading Canadian poetry journal, Dandelion, and coached undergraduate academic writing there.  She has given academic seminars at several Canadian universities, including McMaster University, University of Calgary, University of Manitoba, and University of Western Ontario, where she acquired her Bachelor’s degree (Honors) in English Literature. 

As a member of the Hong Kong Writers’ Circle, organized by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, she spends a solid chunk of her time penning poetry that captures the lives of Hong Kongers, mainlanders and Chinese expatriates.  Her latest poem, “Morning Drift,”   will soon appear in Yuan Yang: A Journal of Hong Kong and International Writing, published by the University of Hong Kong.  As a mentor, she always encourages youngsters to put their thoughts into writing—and be creative.  At present, she devotes most of her time to teaching children and adults in several English disciplines and levels. 

Gloria is also an associate member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, assisting students and families with educational decision making.
