Behind the Scenes at InBetween

When the TWG spread its wings and visited Kaohsiung recently, we had the pleasure of meeting the organisers at InBetween International and participating in two events inspired by our anthology, Night Market. The TWG gave presentations on their writing journeys, and artists, musicians and providers of natural foods and beauty products joined ranks to create wonderful, cultural evenings. In our downtime we also had plenty of fun exploring Taipei’s foremost southern city.

First stop was – naturally – a night market. Liuhe Night Market provided a quick dinner before that evening’s event. 20151121_18253120151121_18290120151121_18365520151121_184628

Next we had a great time at the cultural night market organised by InBetween, giving presentations, selling books and making new Kaohsiung friends.

We were also delighted to meet a reader who had asked for both anthologies to be posted to him when they were published earlier in the year. I found out later he also kindly blogged about the InBetween events.

 

After a long day and exciting evening, it was time to wind down with Kaohsiung friends. 12238070_10207118896642968_1734641540323636407_o

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following day was spent at Pier 21, a vibrant cultural centre, and taking touristy photos. 12265921_10207118902123105_6122546492772647310_o 12239254_10207118900603067_9097948950577054155_o

Yet more was in store for the TWG in the evening of the second day, when we met some writers interested in setting up their own group, and we were able to share our experiences.

Thanks to our gracious hosts, In Between International, the TWG’s first venture beyond Taipei was a blast and a resounding success.
