Singapore Writers Festival 2022:
The Trouble With Tropes
Date: 19 Nov 2022 (Sat)
Time: 2.30 - 3.30pm
Venue: The Arts House, Play Den
Tropes abound in the world of fiction! Enemies to lovers and drop-dead gorgeous vampires. While tropes have sensationalised many literary works and made literature more accessible, do they risk ruining writing mediums? Three writers ruminate on the validity of tropes and stereotypes in writing, how they can (re)invigorate stories, and how they will continue to shape a new generation of writers and readers alike.
