how to publish book in singapore?

i'm not sure where to post, so just post here ^^; if no response then go sgclub cafe post.

apart from low kay hwa, i don't know of any other singaporean writers ._. those who write stories, i mean. and i know that low kay hwa set up his own publishing thing.

one of my many ridiculous ambitions is to be a writer, so these days i was just poking around the web searching for a list of singaporean publishers, and turns out all i found were education-related publishers. so if a singaporean wants to publish a novel, where is he/she supposed to go?

gahh -_-

OH OH, if singapore don't have, do you think those UK/america publishers will publish my book? heh. fat chance right.

Re: how to publish book in singapore?

I know there's one publisher in Jurong East Central, but I can't remember the name already --> arg

Try the following --> hopefully have --> http://www.publishers-sbpa.org.sg/members.asp --> http://www.publishersglobal.com/dire...s-of=Singapore

These are the publishers in Singapore; there should be one who's accepting manuscripts for novels.

Cheers! Jia You!

Re: how to publish book in singapore?

You're not the only one. I'd like to write for a living too but well...such a profession seems bleak in Singapore.

Anyway, I'd definitely like to write novels someday. But for now, I can only write novels to appease myself.

Re: how to publish book in singapore?

It's not easy to get published in Singapore but you can always go the self-publishing route if you have the funds. Or if you don't have the money to print your own books (min print run is around 1000, I think), you can always go to Print-on-demand sites like Lulu.com.

Lulu not only helps you print when someone orders your book on their site, but also takes care of all the shipping and everything else. All you have to do is upload your manuscript onto their website. I too have a novel selling on their site. =3

Some local publishers which you may consider is:

1) Renaissance Publishing
2) Select Books
3) Flame of the forest
4) Monsoon Books
5) Graham Brash

Hope the info helps. =3

You can always try foreign publishers. I believe that if your manuscript matches their needs and publishing program, they'll definitely give you a chance even if you're from Singapore.

Oh and you can always visit my AMWC blog to get more info on how to become a published writer. =)

Re: how to publish book in singapore?

hihi, i am also one who is hoping to become a writer though i writes in chinese

anyways if u all havent yet know, there is a singapore writers festival 2009 being held now.

The SPH-NAC Golden Point Award (GPA) 2009 is Singapore’s national and premiere creative writing competition. The SPH-NAC GPA is held in conjunction with the Singapore Writers Festival (SWF), the nation’s only major literary event and one of the few literary festivals in Asia that is multi-lingual. The Singapore Writers Festival (SWF) and the SPH-NAC GPA is co-organised by the National Arts Council and The Arts House. Singapore Press Holdings and Singapore Press Holdings Foundation are also the Official Sponsors for SWF 2009.

Started in 1993 to promote the art of creative writing in the four major languages of Singapore – English, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil – it is the only national literary writing competition to have two main categories – short story and poetry – in every language.

Aims of the SPH-NAC GPA:

* Identify new creative writing talent
* Promote the art of creative writing
* Encourage talented local writers to strive for the highest level of literary skill
* Create a conducive environment for creative thinking and literary expression in Singapore

The SPH-NAC GPA accepts only original and unpublished works. No prior experience in publishing or writing professionally is needed for interested participants.

Window for submissions: 10 March 2009 to 29 May 2009. The official entry form can be picked up at The Arts House Box Office or NAC reception or downloaded here:
full details :
http://www.singaporewritersfestival.com/

personally i think this is a wonderful platform for all budding writers in singapore to showcase their talent.
if ur article manage to win the first prize, u even had a chance to publish ur article.

i am joining the chinese category and my article is abt 75% done

there is no limit to hw many articles u can send but for each article, $16 admin fee is required.

Let's strive to be a writer!

I saw that site a few weeks ago, but the admin fee.... ;_;
And sadly, I do think that it is very difficult to become a published writer in Singapore.
