DESCRIPTION

Featuring: Jennani Durai, Shelly Bryant

One has experienced Singapore as an outsider looking in, the other as an insider who has now ventured out. Both are flourishing members of Singapore’s literary community. Meet Shelly Bryant, author of speculative fiction collection Launch Pad, and Jennani Durai, whose short stories in Regrettable Things That Happened Yesterday draw from her experiences as a journalist.
