Writing in Singapore

There’s something I should confess. I sometimes back post. When I slack off and lag behind, and holes appear in my calendar, I will scurry to fill them up. Like the neurotic filler-upper that I am. Like I am doing now. So it’s actually 1.50am on October 7. And here are my links about writing in Singapore.

Oh? I’m repeating myself?

Like I said it’s 1.50am. On October 7. Actually, it’s now 1.51am.

The 2nd Rule. Anti-establishment feel and equally unfriendly frames makes it hard to navigate, but there’s some really good writing there.

Literary Singapore, a sort of notice board for writing-related events in Singapore. Sign up to be informed of readings, poetry slams, call for submissions, awards, grants, etc.

Quite recently launched Metastatic Whatnot. Nicholas Liu’s endeavour with some friends.

Alvin Pang’s Poetry Billboard is showcase of local poets, along with some nice resource links.

Quarterly Literary Review Singapore comes with a forum that gets quite animated after awards are given out.

Straits Times columnist Richard Lim’s website. If you manage to keep a straight face through the funny flasturbation intro, you’ll get to a comprehensive archive of his articles.

Not quite local, but Slope Issue 15 had a sampler of new Singapore poetry, guest edited by Felix Cheong.

Currently my favourite local author Tan Hwee Hwee. Wish the site said more.

Verbosity also by Alvin. Reflections has become a blog and a pretty interesting one too!

You’re right. Couldnt keep a straight face at R. Lim’s website.
