Writer

France born Alice Miquel is a lover of words who recently moved to Hong Kong. She is fascinated by the art of paper-making and she loves indulging in the pleasure of writing. She trained under one of the most demanding literary curriculums in France before earning a master’s degree in economics at Sciences Po. She lived in Tokyo for more than 10 years, where she founded Aoyama Notebooks, which are bound by hand according to a traditional Japanese method. In Hong Kong, Alice continues to make paper products in her atelier. With fresh eyes, Alice contributes the Slow Hong Kong column to Zolima CityMag, which she hopes will be a way to celebrate the passing of time with attention to detail and a hint of humour and poetry.
