Singapore Writers Festival

So I google TimeOutSingapore Thursday evening.

This pops up: Singapore Writers Festival 

I love living in a city where this is how you can spend your weekend at a moments notice.

Organised by the National Arts Council, the festival features panel discussions, writers workshops & book signings.  All for $15 for a week-long pass.  Three of my highlights included:

“Pillow Fight: Do Women Write Better Sex Than Men?”
This was part of their ‘Erotic Fiction’ strand. Always a crowd pleaser. Hearing this city discuss the artistic merit of XXX porn is actually quite a bold move for shy little Singapore. Refreshing to see a little risqué festival programming.

You Can Write Too!
Was a nice pep talk panel discussion from writers old, young & new. It’s inspiring to be reminded that the first step to becoming a writer is to call yourself a writer. Other great tit-bits included: “Write for you” & “Don’t write in secret!” Wise words.

Getting Lost; Getting Inspired
Wanderlust, exotica, travel writing. All of my favorite things.

The quote of the weekend has to be:

“I write to taste life twice. Once in the moment, and once in retrospect”  Anais Nin.

    Me too smokez87, I only came across it through timeout. I’m pretty sure it’s an annual thing though :)

An.an.tas.in : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.
