About the Programme/Event

People think 'worldbuilding' applies primarily to speculative fiction such as science fiction,  fantasy and horror. But almost every piece of fiction - and indeed, quite a lot of non-fiction -  requires the author to 'build' a world, to facilitate the reader's understanding of the  motivations driving the characters and plot.

We explore the art of worldbuilding in all its glorious forms, from comic books to fantasy novels, anime/manga to sci-fi, with an emphasis on Singapore-based writers.

About Writing the City

We are a literary arts platform in Singapore which supports a community of new, emerging and established prose writers to develop their writing craft. We provide a space for writers in Singapore to share their work, and to give and receive feedback. 

Our focus is on writing craft and technique in a Singaporean context. We organise monthly workshops, and with each workshop we explore a specific thread of the writing craft.
