A Platform Where Writers And Readers Meet

Peer-Driven Workshop Groups

Our selection of affiliated and self-organised writing collectives.

The Image-Symbol Department 

Currently inactive, the Image-Symbol Department consisted primarily of young writers participating in the inaugural Singapore Poetry Writing Month in 2014. Comprising primarily of writers that formed the first and second batch of Ten Year Series titles (a Sing Lit Station-managed imprint under Math Paper Press), the collective went on to form the founding committee behind the educational and critical resource, and produced a multi-sensory programme titled "Colourless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously" for The Arts House's Open House in 2016.
