The 2020/2021 Jalan Besar Writing Residency at Sing Lit Station

Because of the writing and production of The Book of Red Shadows for the Singapore Writers Festival, it’s only now that I’ve gotten around to the other big news for this last quarter of 2020.

I am quite pleased to announce that multi-disciplinary artist nor; poet, fictionist and critic Sam Toh and I have been selected as the three writers-in-residence for the Jalan Besar Writing Residency at Sing Lit Station for the October 2020/March 2021.

I am the third person of Filipino descent to be part of this program, after fictionist and editor Noelle Q. de Jesus and award-winning poet Lawrence Lacambra Ypil.
