Singapore Writers Festival SWF 2014 celebrates beauty! Think of the pleasure of encountering a well-formed poem, the sense of satisfaction at the end of an immersive novel, all made possible by the subtle, even ingenious, wielding of words by the tenacious writer.

This SWF, expect to take a closer look at genres like romance, song writing and the lyrical in literary fiction and poetry; while in non-fiction, we navigate the philosophy of aesthetics, today’s multi-billion dollar beauty culture and the anxieties about the body and attracting a partner.
