In Books, Writing

To my friends in Singapore who are passionate about writing, I would recommend you participate in this short story contest. I’ve interviewed many bestselling authors in my FirstBook Podcast and many have told me that it was the little things like participating in contests or essay competitions that gave them the belief and confidence to become an author. Go for it. There is prize money but way more important and far more beneficial is the feedback and validation you get from the readers. Go for it.
