I first entered BooksActually when it was in Club Street in early 2010. The first book I bought was on Joseph Cornell - little did I know Kenny was an artist and creator of his own boxes.
I began to write again in 2010 when at BooksActually I saw a copy of Ceriph Issue Zero. I decided to submit a story I wrote in 1997 called We Rose Up Slowly. Much to my surprise and joy, the story was accepted for Ceriph Issue One. That story leads my debut collection We Rose Up Slowly.
So lets celebrate this place that is a Singapore institution for independent thought and creativity.
