This competition is over, but it’s a pretty cool idea for short fiction. Twitter style – Tweetfiction. If any of you use Twitter and you come across entries for this competition, please share here, or if you would like to create your own, also feel free. 🙂
Here’s a couple that I could find and do like:
@famishus: The gene therapy to correct irrationality was successful. The collapse of the stand-up comedy industry was an unintended side-effect.
@famishus: In desperation, I pulled out my Verified Original card. The clones backed off in anger and/or awe. If they found it was a fake…
Here’s an interesting article on published local women writers. They write steampunk! I am quite excited. This post was written by Joyce Chng – “A Voice in the Dark?” Please do check it out, support local writers, because after all, we’re local writers too (or at least we would like to be right?), and we do want people to support us.
Joyce Chng is a local writer, she has published an online book called A Wolf’s Tale. Lovely lady, I met her at last year’s Spore Con at Pasir Ris East CC – we had a panel discussion on genre publishing in Singapore. Check out her blog, a couple entries back, there’s a call for submission to a local anthology you may be interested in. Or if you’re just interested in the anthology, it’s call The Ayam Curtain.
Last night I went for Poiesis, a poetry slam, which is a fascinating concept. Not that I could ever dare to do the same myself – standing on a stage to perform my poem is quite daunting to me. But if you guys are interested in going to watch (we could go together), there’s a monthly poetry slam (free event) at Blu Jaz, 11 Bali Lane, 2000 – 2200, last Thursday of every month. The Budding Writers League was there yesterday as well. I’ve added my name to their contact list, and you can join them if you want.
Also, I mentioned some local sci-fi/fantasy writers, here’s one of them: Joyce Chng, here’s her book on goodreads.
EDIT (5 Mar 2012): The Budding Writers League has a writing competition for March, if you’re interested.
