Ceriph x Math Paper Press
Singapore based literary journal Ceriph proudly presents its next issue, published under Math Paper Press. Since its inception, it has been featured on The Straits Times, youth.sg, and blankanvas by Pat Law. It has also made its way to the Tokyo Art Book Fair 2010 in Harajuku, Tokyo. Ceriph exists as a space in print for writers from Singapore to share their poetry, prose, photography and illustrations—a space that is neither too formal nor flippant, that combines word and form.

Issue One takes flight on the 17th of September 2010, Friday, 7.30pm at BooksActually, located on 86 Club Street. Come for chai and cake and listen to new writers from Singapore reading their strange tales from this city on everything from a love letter from an astronaut, onion soup, to umbilical cord monsters. Join the facebook page for updates, or just cross out those dates on your calendar as we celebrate yet another addition to the growing body of local literature.
