After quite a long break, the few remaining members of the Bangkok Writers Guild have finally decided on a day on which to meet and share their work. This date is Wednesday, July 15, 2009! The group will meet at Bourbon Street restaurant-bar (in the back room) at 7 pm, on Sukhumvit Soi 22. The location was previously known as Mambo Cabaret (and before that the Washington Theatre) – see map below (click to enlarge).
The following Bangkok-based writers have already confirmed their presence: Gary Dale Cearley, author of Thou Shall Not Bear False Witness: The Truth about Vatican and the Birth of Islam, C.Y. Gopinath, author of Travel with the Fish and Aaron Le Boutillier, author of And Then One Morning (and, of course, the undersigned).
Bangkok Writers Guild is an informal group of foreign writers from Thailand. The group was first started in 2007, but stopped its activity sometime towards the end of 2008. Let’s hope that the first meeting of 2009 will be followed by many others. If you’re a published author, an aspiring writer or just want to hang out with some cool guys, you’re most welcome to join us!
Voicu Mihnea Simandan is a Romanian writer, member of the Bangkok Writers Guild, who has been living and working in Thailand since 2002. He is the author of “The Ironman. A Play”, a book for children well-received in educational circles.
