What we're about

Caferati (www.caferati.com) is a forum for adult writers in English. Most of what we do is online, but we also have an active real world presence, especially here in Singapore where we meet in a quiet bookish place. Join us to share your original writing in English with the group. Newcomers are welcome! Whether you’re a published author or a newbie, you’ll find peers in our group. We are completely non-commercial.

What you can read:
Fiction, poetry, essays, scripts, screen scenarios—anything that can be read aloud—in English, and within the time limit set (if there is one).

How you benefit:
You get feedback from fellow-writers in a congenial environment. It also helps to have a fixed day of the month to show off your new writing.

How to join us:
We generally meet on alternate Saturdays at 3:30pm in a place such as The Arts House. Sometimes we choose other places. Join us through Meetup, and join in.

Rules:
Be respectful in your critique.

Come over with a few copies of what you’ve written. If you’re interested in writing but not sure you want to read out your own piece the first time, that’s OK as well – join us to hear the others!
