Bridging worlds
through words.

Migrant Writers of Singapore is a collective of migrant literature enthusiasts. We offer a platform and various activities for migrant artists to develop their talents. Our core values are to serve migrants with integrity and kindness.

MISSION

Migrant Writers of Singapore offers a safe and inclusive platform for all migrants to volunteer and engage in literature and the arts. Our literary events serve to raise awareness on important issues, as well as promote and embrace cultural diversity. We believe that everyone has a gift, hence we aim to create a self-sustaining community and empower migrants to discover their talents, develop a voice and give back to Singapore.

VISION

Weaving connections between migrants and locals using our shared love for literature and the arts; creating an inclusive global community that celebrates every individual’s unique background and experience.
