About

Laura Hong

I'm a Media and Public Relations graduate student at the University of the Pacific. Overall, I am a writer by trade. On the side....

I write weekly articles on comic books for CC2KOnline. If you're a creator looking for someone to write about your comic, message me. I'd love to read and write about your work.

In addition, I'm the Web Editor for the new online literary journal, Blue Lyra Review. We're always looking for poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art submissions. Talk to me for more information.

I aspire to work in an environment where I feel like I'm making some kind of a difference. And one day, a place where I can live and breathe comic books.
