Big thanks to Evergreen Secondary School and its terrific team of educators for hosting the Ethos Books team at its Poetry Day. Christine Chia, Hao Guang, Theophi Kwek and I each facilitated poetry appreciation workshops for different groups of 14 and 15 year olds. For my "Lines Spark Code" workshop, I engaged the students in understanding how the study of Singapore-made poems helps us see the universal in the specific, the familiar in the foreign, and vice versa. I gave a little reading at the end of poems by Heng Siok Tian, Simon Tay and yours truly.
Special thanks to Kah Gay and team for inviting us to partner with Ethos in its year-round schools programme!
