#MYWritersFest (previously known as #MYWritersBookFest) is a month-long festival in October that celebrates local writers and their writings, where writers meet readers in intimate settings, and writers are given the opportunity to showcase their creative works.
A series of Meet & Greet sessions, a mass book launch, book sales, readings and signings are held at various locations in Malaysia. The public is invited to meet and mingle with local writers, find out about their writings and publications, buy their books or bring your own copies, take wefies and get autographs!
Organised by the Malaysian Writers Society, the whole month of Oct is packed with activities for readers and writers alike! So here are some of the programmes lined-up for the fest this year:
Besides that, a series of professional and practical workshops/trainings are also held to equip and enrich the journey of a Malaysian writer.
On Friday, MAG speaks to the President of the Malaysian Writers Society, Gina Yap Lai Yoong about the MY Writers Fest 2017!
