17 December 2021 8:00 PM SGT. Speculative Futures in the Climate Crisis: A Reading. Lishani Ramanayake. Chiara Situmorang. Myle Yan Tay. Stephanie Dogfoot.

In June 2021, we launched a creative writing pilot with the theme Speculative Futures in the Climate Crisis. We received an enthusiastic response, and are pleased to present four pieces of original flash fiction that we commissioned. The pieces will be published in January 2022, but New Naratif members get a special sneak preview through a reading by the authors. Join us for a reading of the pieces and a Q&A with the authors and the editors, Deborah Augustin and Minxi Chua.

For this reading, there is a minimum donation of US$5, for which you’ll receive a month’s New Naratif membership. Existing members can attend this event for free! Join New Naratif as a member today.
