The annual Singapore Writers Festival (SWF) features the world's major literary talents. One of Asia’s premier literary events, and one of the few in the world that is multi-lingual (focused on the official languages of Singapore – English, Malay, Chinese and Tamil), SWF will return from 2 to 11 November 2012!
This year, we're very excited to have Eshkol Nevo. One of Israel’s brightest new voices, Eshkol Nevo works mainly in Hebrew and has written three bestselling novels. Dealing with the themes of journeys, borders and identity, both that of a writer’s as well as an Israeli’s, his novels Homesick, World Cup Wishes and Neuland, have been translated into English and have won acclaim with audiences in Israel and around the world. While continuing to tell stories of his homeland, Eshkol teaches creative writing and thinking at the Sam Spiegel Film & Television School, Tel Aviv University, Sapir College and the Open University.
