This event brings together young local writers writing in Chinese, such as Tan Chee Lay, Li Qingsong, Tan Xi Zhe, Zhou Hao, He Yingshu, He Er, Teo Eng Hao, Teo Kok Keong, Tan Kah Wai, Quek See Ling and Liu Chang. They will discuss a wide range of topics related to literature, such as fiction writing, reading and the writer’s imagination, the subtle relationship between poetry and everyday life, and the future of local Chinese literature.

The works of the writers will be exhibited, and a group of actors led by director Nelson Chia from Nine Years Theatre will read excerpts from Art Studio, a novel by renowned local writer Yeng Pway Ngon.

参与这项活动的青年作家如 陈志锐、李青松、陈晞哲、周昊、何颖舒、贺尔、张英豪、张国强、陈嘉炜、郭诗玲、刘畅等,将探讨以文学有关的各种课题,包括小说创作、阅读、小说家的异想世界、诗与生活的微妙关系,以及本地文学的未来之路。

本活动除了展出这些青年作家的文学作品,九年剧场艺术总监谢燊杰和旗下演员们也将进行本地得奖作家英培安小说《画室》的选段朗读。
