Celebrating its 22nd edition this year, the Singapore Writers Festival (SWF) is regarded as one of Asia’s premier literary events. This year, SBC has partnered with the festival to present over 20 programmes that cover Translation, Youth Fringe, SWF Classroom and Industry related topics.

Open: Singapore Young Writers Lab
All In! Young Writers Festival has been revamped to become Open: Singapore Young Writers Lab, a year-round programme consisting of talks, workshops and mentorships for writers between the ages of 13 and 25.
#BuySingLit is an industry-led movement to celebrate stories from Singapore. Advocating ‘Buy Local, Read Our World’, homegrown book publishers, retailers and literary non-profits have come together to encourage more people to discover and embrace Singapore’s literature. Through buying and reading local works, you support the writers who bear witness to our lives, as well as the businesses in our community that deliver these stories to us. Most of all, you will experience the profound joy of unravelling the multi-faceted world around you.
