Our goal has always been to help promote Penang-based writers, both published and unpublished, by giving them a platform and a tangible form of output to get into the hands of new readers. And just as nutmegs are home-grown in our lovely island, we aim to be a 100% Penang-grown product.
In NutMag Volume 1, you’ll find poetry, flash fiction and creative non-fiction written by 10 authors based in Penang. We’re immensely proud of what they’ve produced and we hope you are too.
Anna Tan grew up in Malaysia, the country that is not Singapore. In 2015, she traded in a life of annoying other bean counters for one of annoying the online world with questions about life and death and everything in between. The answer is sometimes 42. Sometimes they eat you. When she is not writing or nitpicking over other writers' copy, she can be found reading a book or attempting to organise her room. She is currently working on the sequel to Coexist.
