OPEN CALL FOR TWIN CINEMA POETRY SUBMISSIONS

Published on 24 May 2017

Sing Lit Station founder Joshua Ip and Tammy Ho, the co-editor of Cha: An Asian Literary Journal from Hong Kong are looking for poems!

More specifically, they will be editing the first twin cinema collection in the world, and the first collection of original English-language poetry by poets from Hong Kong and Singapore.

“We share some links of cultural heritage, postcolonial history, rich financial centres and trading ports with the hectic life that follows, and also the sense of hinterland yawning just across the water. Yet we also rival each other in numerous fields, and are divided by language, by geography, and political affiliation and situation. This is fertile ground for poetry,” says Ho.

The twin cinema poetic form was invented by Singaporean poet and Singapore Writers Festival director Yeow Kai Chai.

The deadline for submissions is Sat 3 June 2017. Click here for more details on how to submit your works.
