A BookFest to celebrate the first anniversary of the Malaysian local writing community that transcends genre, language, function, medium and experience levels. #MYWriters will be hosting a month-long festival throughout October 2015 by holding mass writer appearances, book sales & signings at various locations in Malaysia.
Meet and mingle with local writers, find out about their writing and publications, buy their books or bring your own copies, take wefies and get their autographs!
We are giving out free bookmarks for this occasion! Remember to bring your bookmark along when you visit the locations and get your check-in stamps. Get 3 stamps to be eligible to join the Lucky Draw during our Finale.
