Veteran poet Anne Lee Tzu Pheng shares experiences and lessons gleaned from more than 30 years of writing poetry. She explains how her journey has become a vocation, where writing is not a choice or an exercise of the will, but a mysterious unfolding of her convictions that has much to do with personal identity and spiritual growth.
The Literary Pioneer programme is curated by The Arts House and comissioned by the Singapore Writers Festival.
