One of the things I'm passionate about is building the community of writers in Penang and, to a larger extent, in Malaysia. MYWriters Penang started in 2016 as the Penang Writers Events group on Facebook to do just that! With the registration of the Malaysian Writers Society in Sept 2016, we're glad to come under their banner and to keep doing what we've been doing - fostering a sense of community amongst local writers and offering a platform for writers to showcase and promote their work. Part of this is our annual zine, NutMag, as well as our monthly Reading events.
The submissions call for NutMag II is now up!
The reading period will be from 16 February - 30 June 2017 so you have plenty of time to cook up something that fits the theme Coffee or Tea? Interested? Head over to the submissions page to find out more.
If you're ever in town, do come visit us at one of our regular weekly write-ins, or drop by at one of our monthly events!
