How does loss relate to writing? How does it shape writing? The panel will feature Desmond, Li Shan and Clara, in an hour-long investigation where lived experiences and craft meet.
In this session, we will explore:
1. How writing can be a witness to a personal loss
2. The responsibilities of writers when approaching such topics.
3. An interrogation of the language/medium used as a means to write on such issues.
Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé is the author of an epistolary novel, three hybrid works, and nine poetry collections.
Chan Li Shan is Director of the Writing Center and Writing Residency Fellow at the Asian University for Women.
