Singapore Writers Festival 2014

October 31, 2014 - November 9, 2014

The Singapore Writers Festival, one of Asia’s premier literary events, started in 1986 as a biennial festival. Now held yearly, the festival is a much anticipated event on the cultural calendar, presenting the world’s major literary talents to Singaporeans while shining a spotlight on home grown creative talents. SWF has delighted book lovers by featuring Singapore writers Meira Chand, Alvin Pang, Suchen Christine Lim and You Jin, as well as international luminaries such as Steven Levitt, Michael Chabon, Neil Gaiman, Bi Feiyu, Andrew Motion and Gao Xingjian.

The Singapore Writers Festival is one of the few multi-lingual literary festivals in the world, celebrating the written and spoken word in Singapore’s official languages – English, Malay, Chinese and Tamil. Today the heart of the Festival District is located on the Singapore Management University’s Campus Green; and in the surrounding venues including The Arts House, the National Museum of Singapore, the Singapore Art Museum and The National Library.
