SHKP Reading Club Talk – 'More Than a Writer: I Am a Slasher!'
Daisy Wong, Lwoavie and Jacky Jim share tips on becoming a slasher


11 Jun 2019


Following the large-scale talk for young people at Sky100 in late April, the SHKP Reading Club under Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) hosted another event last Saturday at the APM mall in Kwun Tong. Three slash gurus – satirical author Daisy Wong, online fiction writer Lwoavie, and TV anchor Jacky Jim – shared their insights on how writers can expand beyond the 'writer' identity by becoming versatile slashers and diversifying across different mediums to create multi-dimensional works in the Internet 3.0 era.

Traditional workplace wisdom is all about staying focused, but today's young generation are not fans of monotony. Recently, the world has witnessed the rise of the new 'slasher' population, who are people with multiple professions and identities who separate their different titles with 'slashes'. The SHKP Reading Club talk, titled 'More Than a Writer: I Am a Slasher!', attracted a group of young people who wish to express themselves through words and become slashers.

SHKP Director of Corporate Communications Chris Liu said that after its fifth anniversary last year, the SHKP Reading Club has taken a brand new approach in 2019, focusing on promoting reading among young people by introducing a variety of reading experiences. In addition to launching an online reading platform 'Read for More', the SHKP Reading Club has organized different interesting offline events that enable young people to interact with popular, renowned authors and celebrities to learn from their experience and find inspiration from extended reading.

During the talk, the three slashers, who had the courage to take on more identities than usual, generously shared their experience and agreed on the three essentials to becoming a successful slasher: capability, perseverance, and staying true to oneself. Lwoavie said that he had made direct submissions to 30 publishers in vain, so he decided to publish his work online. Since then, Lwoavie has become very popular among young readers and students, and has written over 70 books in 10 years. The online writer attributes his success to perseverance. Thus, his advice for the young generation is not to give up on their dreams and not to fear obstacles or failure. Daisy Wong, an author famous for her satire, has published over 30 books, and hosted about 40 talk shows and two concerts. She said young people should always be loyal to themselves even when attempting something new, so that they can express their uniqueness rather than drift with the tide. At the same time, they must understand their own ability well to avoid wasting precious time. Jacky Jim, who juggles parallel lives in entertainment and finance, believes that reading and writing are two of the secrets to creating successful multiple identities. He advised young people to remain curious about the world and broaden their horizons by reading in order to prepare for and plan their own unique slasher life.

Launched in mid-January this year, SHKP Reading Club's online reading platform 'Read For More' has published various feature stories, including 'A Style Called Reading' and '365 Celeb Reading List', to discuss reading in a fun way through interesting daily matters. The platform also includes interviews with celebrities, such as actor Chin Ka-lok, singer Alfred Hui, and online influencer and English teacher Uncle Siu, and invites different travel veterans to share their unique experiences.
