Seram Tales @ Ipoh Coming Our Way 

Sharpened Word will be having its October session on the 31st, featuring the Stephen King of Malaysia, Tunku Halim and Taiping-based ghost story writer, Julya Oui.

Yes, dear readers, you guessed it right…The session will be based on Seram Tales @ Ipoh, where attendees will have the opportunity to share their own scary experiences! This is in line with the Halloween celebration which falls on the same day.

Tunku Halim is a lawyer by profession and a ghost story writer by passion. His stories draw inspiration from a multitude of local myths and superstitions. Tunku Halim is also known as the ‘Malaysian Stephen King’ in reference to the American best-selling ghost story writer. (sourced from Nikkei Asia)

Julya Oui is a Taiping-based ghost story writer, whose love for a good story inspires her to write ‘to appease her imagination and reaffirm her sanity’. She grew up with a vast collection of stories that go bump in the night, like The Twilight Zone, Stephen King creations and many more. (sourced from Latitudes.nu)
