A Story Is a Promise

This past weekend, I moderated an event called A Story Is a Promise: Short Fiction in an Age of Survival, which was streamed live on the Epigram Books Facebook page. It was a panel discussion about the role of short stories during these tumultuous times, as well as a book launch for Best New Singaporean Short Stories: Volume Five, guest edited by Balli Kaur Jaswal. Balli and I were joined by contributors Ng Yi-Sheng, Jayashree Panicker and Anittha Thanabalan, who read extracts from their stories and talked about what short fiction means to them.

If you missed the live broadcast, you can now watch the video below.
