Singapore Poetry Writing Month, or as we affectionately call it, SingPoWriMo. Write one poem a day for thirty days in the cruel month of April: that was the challenge we gave the Internet a year ago. This anthology brings together the best of the hundreds of poems that were submitted in 2015, with verses written in response to I’ve- woken-up- in-Bishan-Park-but-it’s-3am scenarios, to impromptu poems written about desire in dark places. In the spirit of community, we are proud to feature first-time poets beside established ones, and poems written in code-speak beside the recently-revived form of the empat perkataan.
