Jalan Besar Writing Residency
All access, half a year.
Sing Lit Station is pleased to offer working space to a select number of writers for a six-month-long writers' residency program. Our writers-in-residence are invited to conduct workshops, meetings, readings and other events on behalf of Sing Lit Station, with full access to our venue.
2018 / 2019
We are no longer accepting submissions to the 2018/2019 residency programme; will be announcing the names and profiles of our new writers-in-residence soon.
THE 2018/2019 JALAN BESAR WRITING RESIDENCY
The Jalan Besar Writing Residency seeks to select 2-3 Singapore-based writers and grant them full access to our office to work on any form of literary creation. The residency will last from 1 Oct 2017 to 29 Mar 2019, with an option to extend their residency for another 1-4 months if necessary.
All of our Writers-in-Residence will be given keys to our office and assigned desk space. They are welcome to write, hold meetings, carry out projects and use the venue in any way befitting to their practice. Towards the close of their Residency, our Writers-in-Residence will be obliged to hold a public-facing programme (i.e. talk, workshop, reading) to commemorate the end of their time with Sing Lit Station.
Applications to the 2018/2019 Jalan Besar Writing Residency have closed. Details on the 2019/2010 residency will be announced in Q2 of 2019.
