Description

Please join us for the February 2018 Monthly Meet Up!

In February we will be joined by Singaporean writer, Yu-Mei Balasingamchow to look in detail at her story, Grandmother, which was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize in 2014.

Yu-Mei Balasingamchow is the co-author of Singapore: A Biography (2009), and co-editor of the literary collection, In Transit: An Anthology from Singapore on Airports and Air Travel (2016). Her short fiction has been shortlisted for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize and published in the UK, US and Singapore. In 2015, she was an honorary fellow in writing at the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa. In 2017, she was writer-in-residence at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. She lives in Singapore and is working on a novel.

We will also be reviewing participants' stories, enjoying writing exercises and discussing how to write compelling characters.

If you would like to come along then click on REGISTER above and I will email you further details.

Also, if you wish to have your story read & thoughtfully considered by the Writing the City facilitator and/or the participants please kindly email me directly at jongresham11@gmail.com.

Hope to see you in February.

Cheers
