DESCRIPTION

Singapore is a migrant nation. Who truly deserves the title “local”, and how far removed is your average “local poet” from the term “migrant worker”? The anthology “Call and Response” gathers the voices of more than thirty “migrant” poets, and pairs them with a creative response from the same number of “local” writers in this initiative by local literary charity Sing Lit Station. The collection is co-edited by Rolinda Onates Espanola, Zakir Hossain, and Joshua Ip. In today’s reading across borders, we hope to present both duels and duets of rhyme and song.
