If you grew up in Singapore in the 90s and early 2000s, iconic magazines such as LIME and Teens might have been your monthly reading material and the only access you had to celebrity news. Who got to curate those iconic centrefolds? How did these teen magazines shape pop culture then? What was it like to write for an impressionable audience and be a formative part of their adolescence?

This programme includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
