SINGAPORE - From migration to translation, from spy secrets to a sense of belonging, writers from across the world will speak of testing and transcending the borders between countries, cultures and languages at the 21st Singapore Writers Festival.

The annual festival will run from Friday (Nov 2) to Nov 11 with over 310 programmes featuring a record of more than 390 writers and speakers. This year's theme is "jie", a Chinese word which can mean "world" or "boundary".
