Join us in experimenting with serialised fiction, around since the days of Dickens, and create a heavily collaborative work via crowdsourcing, livestreaming, and upvoting. Each week for a month each, writers Suffian Hakim (September) and Xie Shi Min (October) will engage readers to discuss plotlines and characters, decide lines of dialogue and worldbuilding elements, and debate relevant points. The completed stories will be published online and readers whose suggestions were used will be acknowledged by name.
