Twilight Tales #4 - Felix Cheong

Twilight Tales is a literary gathering and meet-the-author session organised by the National Book Development Council of Singapore. This time, the guest writer is Singapore author and poet Felix Cheong, recipient of the National Arts Council (NAC) Young Artist Award for Literature in 2000!

Felix has written ten books, including four volumes of poetry and two young adult novels. His third poetry collection, Broken by the Rain, was shortlisted for the Singapore Literature Prize, and his collection of short stories, Vanishing Point, was longlisted for the Frank O’Connor Award in 2013.

At Twilight Tales, Felix  shared his thoughts on the creative writing process, and also touched on his latest satirical flash fiction Singapore Siu Dai and Singapore Siu Dai 2. The audience were also treated to his spontaneous and lively readings of his works.

Thank you to everyone who joined us, and also to Ken Hickson, who was the host and moderator for the evening!
