Twilight Tales #6 O Thiam Chin

This time, our featured author was O Thiam Chin

Thiam Chin is the author of five story collections and winner of the 2015 Epigram Books Fiction Prize. He was also shortlisted for the 2014 Singapore Literature Prize for Fiction, and longlisted for the Frank O’Connor Short Story Award three times – in 2010, 2012, and 2014.

During Twilight Tales, Thiam Chin shared his thoughts on the creative writing processes behind his works, in particular, Love, or Something Like Love, and The Rest of Your Life. Guests were also treated to a spontaenous reading  of a short story by the author himself! 

This session was moderated by Noelle Q. de Jesus, author of Blood (Collected Stories).
A big thank-you to the good folks at The Music Salon for hosting this session at their wonderful space at Niven Road!
