The 23rd Singapore Writers Festival (SWF) concluded its first-ever digital edition on a high note on 18 November 2020 after an extraordinary 20-day line-up of over 160 programmes by more than 200 authors and presenters from Singapore and beyond. Organised by the National Arts Council (NAC), this year’s festival brought together homegrown and international writers, thinkers, and artists in a common digital space where they connected with audiences over a shared love for stories. With conversations around this year’s theme of ‘Intimacy’, SWF 2020 was a timely exploration of what it means to connect with and draw inspiration from one another despite being apart in a time of distance.
