Description

Please join us for the September Monthly Meet Up!

In September we will be looking at Writing History and Historical Fiction with Lim Cheng Tju.

We will also review participants' stories, enjoy writing exercises and answer queries on writing issues.

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

Our special guest this September, Lim Cheng Tju, is one of the authors of The University Socialist Club and the Contest for Malaya: Tangled Strands of Modernity (Amsterdam University Press / NUS Press, 2012), a 'serious' history book about the English-educated student movement in Singapore in the 1950s and 1960s, and the writer of the Guidebook to Nanyang Diplomacy (COSH Studios, 2017), a historical comic book about the Sepoy Mutiny in Singapore in 1915, during WWI. But he does not draw distinctions between the two. He also edits, curates and researches comics history.

Also, if you wish to have your story (up to 1k-1.5k words) 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 September.

Cheers
