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.
2019 / 2020
We are proud to announce that our Jalan Basar Writers-in-Residence are the writer / creative producer Farhanah Diyanah, poet / essayist Lawrence Lacambra Ypil and writer Noelle Q. de Jesus. We at Sing Lit Station look forward to seeing how they will utilise our space to work, create and host meetings, discussions and various programmes over the next 6 months.
THE 2019/2020 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 lasts for a period of six months starting in the month of October, 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 2020/2021 residency will re-open in June 2020. Applicants will be required to submit: 1) a CV; 2) a cover letter detailing any ongoing creative projects and how they intend to use the space; 3) a writing sample.
