This is held in collaboration with the Malaysian Writers Festival 2017 (MYWritersFest17), a nationwide one month-long festival in October organised by Malaysian Writers Society (MYWriters).

MYWritersFest17 is in its third year, operating within a ‘By Malaysians, For Malaysians’ concept where they feature local writers as authors and trainers, and provide content in a local context.

Their events include a Mass Book Launch, author Meet & Greet, and Professional Development Sessions (Workshops and Talks) at various locations in Malaysia.

The Meet & Greet session will be part of WoM on Oct 21. MyWritersFest authors will be doing readings from their books as part of the evening show. Books and merchandise from both MYWriters and WoK will be on sale. The public are most welcome to come meet these writers and performers.
