Late in November, the whole cohort of NUS poetry students came together to perform pieces they had written during the semester with me. To commemorate the series of workshops, we produced an anthology with two poems per student. The anthology is on sale at the University and also at The Arts House.
Working with these young people has been such a joy. Many of them have not written before and even more have not performed their words in public. Friends, family, faculty and others came down to support the reading at BookHaven on campus. I was really moved by how far they have come and how much they seemed to let go and share their pieces for the first time.
All these images are credit to one of the students, Kevin Wong.
