Bridging Borders: The SEA Lit Project

In the spirit of encouraging such intercultural dialogue, the Singapore Book Council has launched a new programme – Bridging Borders: The SEA Lit Project. It will kick off in Yangon, Myanmar from 3 to 6 April 2019.

A delegation of writers, illustrators and publishers from Singapore will meet their counterparts and take part in various programmes over four days, including school workshops, public readings and a literary forum. The Singapore and Myanmar writers will also be paired up to work together on a creative project. The final works will be launched in September in Singapore.

The Art of the Eye: Haiku and Photo-Haiga

This workshop is for those who wish to explore haiku writing (one breath poetry) and smart phone photography. Haiku writing is a kind of snapshot in words, whereas traditional haiga is the art of painting that incorporates a haiku poem.

As well as a workshop session there will be time for participants to go outside and take photographs that resonate with the haiku they have written or vice versa. Participants' works will be collected and posted to group members as an e-book.
