2012 SWF Schedule (updated)

SWF 2012 - OriginsThe schedule for the 2012 Singapore Writers Festival has just been released (here’s my SWF author page), so I can reveal the events in which I’ll be participating this year.

Brand New Books: Math Paper Press Anthology Launch

Three very different anthologies; three different aspects of Singapore. Balik Kampong: Stories of Connection/Disconnection with Different Parts of Singapore takes you back to the village of your imagination and memory, while Ayam Curtain is a mix of bite-sized speculative fiction which offers visions of possible and probable Singapores, from the quirky to the poignant. And in Fish Eats Lion, we have more speculative Singapore short stories; looking at the inherent strangeness of the island nation in a refreshing variety of voices and perspectives.

Globalisation may have brought the world closer together, but has that really improved the lot of humankind? Come join three authors from varied backgrounds as they explore how globalisation has informed their writing. From recasting myths and local beliefs for modern readers to journeys and the role of English translations, this panel reflects on the complexities of today’s inter-connected world.
