Every once in a while, Sing Lit Station plays host to a writer from abroad eager to impart their skills or talk about their work to a select audience. We encourage all writers visiting Singapore to contact us if they would like to conduct a masterclass at our premises, venue sponsor an event, or collaborate in special projects / programmes.


OUR CURRENT OFFERINGS

As part of Momtaza Mehri’s Words Go Round tour in Singapore, Sing Lit Station has put together an evening of poetry that explores new ways of belonging and (un)belonging, becoming and (un)becoming. Joined by poets Pooja Nansi and Cyril Wong, we invite all guests to sit down and relax as we listen to them share poems old and new, about places lost and found.

The event begins at 8pm; door opens at 7.45pm. We hope to end by 9.30pm, although our poets have been instructed to take their time. An informal book signing session will follow the reading.

There will be a $5 door charge. All proceeds will go to our artists and our cat, who has broken many things in the office recently. All guests will be treated to warm tea and sweet, sweet vibes.
