#BuySingLit is back: 6 – 8 and 13 – 15 March 2020

Submit your programme proposal via the Open Call Application now!

#BuySingLit 2019 was a roaring success, all thanks to your support to celebrate Singapore stories! Over two weekends in March, more than 45,000 participants took part in close to 100 events across 62 locations - making this the biggest edition of #BuySingLit to date.

We invite you to join us as a programme partner for #BuySingLit as we return next year: 6 - 8 and 13 - 15 March 2020. Come and be part of this industry-led movement where we hope to encourage the public to “buy local and read our world”. By promoting and buying local books, we are investing in our own stories and deepening our roots here. In other words, we are building and growing our home.
