(Textures 2020) Crossing Writing Genres: The Demands of Craft

What are the challenges for the writer dabbling in different writing genres? What does each genre demand of the writer in terms of literary craft? What of cross-genre or hybrid textual creations? Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé facilitates this illuminating conversation with two eminent writers, Gwee Li Sui and Yeow Kai Chai. The first 20 participants will each receive a journal and a limited-edition poetry broadside.


This programme is part of Textures 2020: A Weekend with Words

First launched in 2018, Textures is an annual literary festival celebrating Singapore literature and the community that drives it.
