This session is in English
11 writers from the Philippines and nine from Singapore were connected via Google Docs for a cross-cultural literary collaboration. The result: this volume. An encounter with annotated small talk, versified duets, digitally mediated dances, riffs against blackouts, and cryptic/triptych meditations- this was/is an experiment. What was experienced and what was meant? The book is the form readers may now complete.
This session is presented by Sing Lit Station.
