We open the pandora's box of the bad, the awkward, and the ugly, and get writers to read works that they're maybe a little less than proud of—but why should they be? Busting out the draft that has never seen the light of day or early writing attempts they’re slightly embarrassed by, we chat with them about how maybe the occasional literary disaster isn’t the worst, irrevocable plot-ending twist to have in a writer’s life.

This programme is supported by the Asia Creative Writing Programme, a joint initiative of the National Arts Council and the School of Humanities at Nanyang Technological University.




Ian Chung graduated from the Warwick Writing Programme.
