Synopsis:

Singapore Poetry Writing Month, or as we affectionately call it, SingPoWriMo.

Write one poem a day for thirty days in the cruel month of April: that was the challenge we first gave the internet in 2014. In its third year, our anthology gathers the best of the 5,110 poems that were submitted in 2018. Daily challenging prompts reflected on the Singaporean condition, with verses written for every MRT and LRT station, poems that upgraded other poems that upgraded other poems and so on. We are proud to feature first-time poets beside established bards, a wide swath of languages – with poems in Minion next to poems in HTML – and the recently-revived form of the udaiyaathathu alongside the ground-breaking twin cinema and asingbol.
