Denise Chong, an internationally published author and best known for her family memoir The Concubine’s Children, is working on her fifth book.  

Jamie Chai Yun Liew is the winner of the 2018 Asian Canadian Writers Workshop (ACWW) Jim Wong-Chu Emerging Writers Award for Fiction for her manuscript Dandelion Roots.
