WORKSHOPS BY DARYL LIM WEI JIE

HISTORY AND POETRY
For:
upper sec, junior college; 15-25 pax
Availability: 2-3 hours per session; single session
Description: History seems to be the domain of fact, and the intellectual inquiry of things past, where the pursuit of objectivity seems paramount. Poetry and literature seem to be domains of subjective perception, emotion and feeling. Where then, do they productively meet? 
Learning Outcomes: how to identify the split between subjective and objective points of view; understand how history can be understood as literature, and vice versa; write practical criticism and creative writing.

WHAT IS SINGAPORE POETRY?
For: upper sec, junior college; 15-25 pax
Availability: 2-3 hours per session; single session
Description: At some point in Singapore's literary history, the phrase "Singapore Poetry" (as opposed to "Singaporean" Poetry or "Poetry from Singapore") emerged. poetry.sg, a website launched in 2015, claims to be "a home of Singapore poetry". This workshop hopes to critically examine the boundaries of what constitutes "Singapore poetry", both through a theoretical, Socratic discussion and also through the reading of various "Singapore" poems, historical (and pre-Singaporean) and also current.
Learning Outcomes: how to enact critical thinking and utilise investigative and analytical skills; how to read poetry with a temporal and spatial lens.
