Then there were twolivejournal entries by Karcy, an undergraduate in Universiti Malaya, also a member of the Phases Young Writers. She attended three events: Women in Print, Writing Children's Stories, and something called the Language of Taboo. Her overall verdict was:
I didn't attend enough events in the KL Lit Fest to judge exactly what goes behind the scenes. But overall -
So cool factor = Yeah! Writers From All Over The World! The Celebrities of the Thinking Mind!
Not cool factor = Uhm, why aren't things according to the schedule?
She apparently turned up at the KLCC Concourse area where National Laurete (Sasterawan Negara) dialogue was scheduled to be held, but was quite dissapointed. I guess mess-ups happen. Here's her take on Women in Print, Writing Children's Stories, and something called The Language of Taboo.
Ah, well. I'd have wanted to stalk the event out myself, but I didn't manage to make it as already had plans for the weekend, and had problems sneaking out *cough* settling my schedule with the parental units.
