2019 Singapore Writers Festival - 3

I had the chance to shoot some events for the Singapore Writer's Festival 2019. They all centered in venues in Singapore's Arts District, which basically houses galleries and museums. I was available only for a day out of ten days of events that consist of talks, debates, book signing and other cultural events on the fringe. A lot of book titles were also made available, specially those released recently and some of the authors were on hand to promote them. Not only books and written media, other contemporary formats received focus. These gentlemen here are discussing podcasts, how much work goes behind creating them, how they manage the real content and the marketting/funding that comes behind. I have to say it seemed a lot of work with a bit of uncertainty and I would not have the confidence that I could pay my monthly bills, if I engaged in such an activity as my main/only source of livelihood. The chap on the extreme right is a moderator for this chat.

It must have been interesting to photograph this event Ayush.
A very nice shot, Ayush! What a fascinating event to be a part of!

I wonder what sort of things they actually do write?
I really love how much you're getting around, Ayush!

This must have been a joy to walk around and listen to all the conversations and look at all the books. This is a world on it's own I think. It would also no be my job, every time not knowing if I can pay the bills. But then, if your passion and your heart is in writing, just give it a go....

Interesting, Ayush. We have what's called "The Bath literary Festival" for a week every year, when authors come to talk and promote their books. It is very good
Ils ont l'air tous attentionnés.
I am not really into podcasts and have never actually listened to or watched one. It is the same with all these Vloggers and influencers.

I'm all for a good book though smile

I'm always staggered at people who make money from blogs, vlogs and such like. I wish I'd had those ideas and the skills to carry it out.
