MEET THE AUTHORS. Get Lucky – an anthology on Filipino stories and experiences in Singapore, written by Filipino and Singaporeans alike – was successfully launched as part of the 2015 Singapore Writers Festival last Nov 7 at The Arts House. The book – containing 22 poems, nine personal essays and four short stories – was the number three bestselling book at the Festival. In photo: Get Lucky writers and editors.
