2016: A Year of New Beginnings
Welcome to my website! 2016 is the start of many new artistic ventures that will be revealed in due course. Please do visit this page often or scroll down the page to subscribe to my email database for updates.
Launch of 'Crossing Universes'
LIVEpress is an initiative by Ethos Books to nurture young writers and editors. I was invited to help facilitate the process between December 2015 and March 2016. Crossing Universe is the published outcome of those few months of collaboration and includes two poems ('Village Shakti' and 'next step') that I wrote.
Please come for the official launch of this book:
Date/Time: Saturday 30 July 2016, 7 p.m.
Venue: Booktique, CityLink Mall, #B1-17A, 1 Raffles Link, Singapore 039393
Launch of 'This is Not a Safety Barrier'
This is Not a Safety Barrier is a project initiated by Marc Nair, Tan Wyn-Lyn and Yen Phang. It is a collection of poems and photographs that question and challenge the barriers in Singapore, whether physical, ideological or imagined. 'Privacy', my creative response to a photograph by Jon Gresham, is being published in this anthology. Details of the official launch of this book will soon be announced.
