Festivals and Major Events

Singapore Writers Festival

The Singapore Writers Festival is one of Asia’s premier literary events, organised by the National Arts Council. Inaugurated in 1986, the Festival serves a dual function of promoting new and emerging Singaporean and Asian writing to an international audience, as well as presenting the world's major literary talents to Singaporeans. SWF has delighted book lovers by featuring literary celebrities such as Singapore writers Meira Chand, Felix Cheong, Shamini Flint, Ho Minfong, Sonny Liew and Edmund Chen, as well as international writers such as Steven Levitt, Michael Chabon, Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, Bei Dao, Joe Haldeman, and comic book writers Gail Simone and Mark Waid. 

To date, it remains one of the few literary festivals in the world that is multi-lingual, celebrating works in Singapore’s official languages – English, Malay, Chinese and Tamil.

Previously biennial, the festival will host its 16th edition in November 2013. Please visit to learn more.

Join us in reaching out to various communities and stakeholders through the written word, while creating visibility for your brand.
