Journalist Michelle Martin on Current Trends in Singapore Book Publishing

For more than seventeen years award-winning journalist and broadcast personality Michelle Martin has had a public platform in Singapore, allowing her to be very in tune to the literary community. As Singapore's National Library Board’s Reading Movement Ambassador and host of the evening radio show Read with Michelle Martin, she is exposed to all aspects of the book publishing market in Singapore. The key to staying on top of industry trends, she says, is networking, and not just through digital means. She encourages authors to be physically present as much as possible. Some trends that Martin is seeing in Singapore include the internationalization of local books and more publishing houses supporting local literature.
