Two USP alums have been shortlisted for this year's Epigram Books Fiction Prize (EBFP). They are:

May Seah (English Literature + USP, Class of 2008), senior digital lifestyle journalist at Channel NewsAsia
Lu Huiyi (English Literature + USP, Class of 2013), pursuing a post-graduate course in Singapore Management University

The EBFP award is growing to be Singapore’s most coveted book prize, with a prize pot of $40,000 to support four novelists in bringing their writing to the masses. Started in 2015, EBFP promotes contemporary Singapore creative writing and rewards excellence in Singapore literature. The final results will be announced at an award ceremony and gala dinner on 22 November.

Interestingly, USP faculty A/P Barbara Ryan was part of the 2017 EBFP judging panel. We are glad that our USP community are contributing actively to, and making an impact in the literary scene in Singapore.

Congrats, ladies and all the best for the final results!
