How to use Symbal

All creative posts on Symbal are labelled with certain tags which you can find at the bottom of each individual post’s page. Our main tags involve writing form (poetry/prose/articles) and we also have author tags to help you search for other works by writers that catch your attention. The CWC tag can also be used to find winning entries from NUS’ yearly creative writing competition. Please make use of them to navigate and enhance your experience here at Symbal!
