July Readings@Seksan

Sorry I haven't really been too good at getting Readings off the ground for the last month or two. Partly I've been trying to avoid dates which clash with other happenings in the city (today for example was Urbanscapes), and partly because I've been busy - and let me confess, somewhat lacking in energy. My get up and go has all got up and gone.

This month promises to be a very good event. Reza, who sparkles much more than I could ever hope to, will take the mic to MC, and to read some of his work.

We have poet Cindy Childress all the way from the US of A; the lovely Uma who has promised to read us some fiction (the first time it has been unveiled in public!); Chua Kok Yee who has plenty of splendidly bizarre and spooky stores. I have also foolhardily volunteered myself (because if I am asking everyone else to have a go, I should be prepared to meself, right?).

Please do come along and support if you can.

Here's all the details :


Date: Saturday 3rd July, 2010

Time: 3.30pm

Place: Seksan's, 67, Jalan Tempinis Satu, Lucky Garden, Bangsar


The readers for this month include:

Reza Rosli

Umapagan Ampikaipakan

Sharon Bakar

Cindy Childress

Chua Kok Yee

Admission free and everyone very welcome. Please pass on the invitation to anyone else you think might be interested.

Sri - I heard that too and am in total shock ... need to call Jason and find out what happened. It's so sudden.

It really is the only local magazine I enjoy.

i got a letter informing me that they would be refunding my subscription and that the july issue is the last. perhaps they stepped on too many toes...

This is terrible news!!! I can't think of any other M'sian publication I'd rather write for. It had a good mix of the frivolous and the meaty. Props to Jason Tan & team for all those years of dedication.
