Get ready to indulge in all your guilty pleasures with the 24th edition of the Singapore Writers Festival! Happening from 5 to 14 November 2021, as the festival returns with an electrifying line-up of programmes and authors inspired by the theme, “Guilty Pleasures”.
Gather round and prepare to be titillated by candid thoughts and juicy opinions from local and international authors, film writers, and musicians on things we all watch, read, and consume for entertainment. Tantalise your taste buds with food-related guilty pleasures, reminisce hits from the 80s and 90s; sink your teeth into tours that will bring you to never-before-seen territories, and explore how fashion can be empowering with TV show host and author Tan France.
Jam-packed with panel discussions, immersive experiences and meet-the-author sessions with festival headliners such as award-winning children’s horror story writer, R. L. Stine; T.S. Eliot Prize-winning poet, Ocean Vuong; host of MasterChef Singapore, Bjorn Shen; founder of Singapore Noodles, Pamelia Chia; Sivadorai Sellakannu, one half of the popular local singing duo, Jack & Rai; and Tun Seri Lanang Award-winning author, Hamed Ismail.
