Textual Landscapes of Singapore Literary Challenge is Open! Win prizes worth $100!

The Singapore Research Nexus at FASS Research Division has launched Textual Landscapes of Singapore, a literary challenge that will showcase poetry and prose on Singapore by the NUS community. All you have to do to win one of 10 prizes worth S$100 (or one of 10 merit prizes worth $50) is write a poem or short prose piece inspired by this prompt:

Be it a familiar sight or a hidden gem of the urban unseen, an iconic place, space or neighbourhood, an architectural marvel, a uniquely Singaporean site of work or play, an eyecatching plant or creature in our natural terrain or built cityscape, write about Singapore!

More information, including the terms and conditions, can be found here.

The winning entries will be added to the SRN creative works repository, and published, along with new photographs from our SG Photobank, in a softcover A4 booklet that showcases SRN’s creative and photographic works. They will also be honoured at an awards ceremony-cum-SG Photobank launch event in 2016, exact date TBC.

Textual Landscapes of Singapore is open to all current NUS students, faculty, and staff as well as all NUS alumni. Submissions are open till 15 January 2016 (Friday), 12pm.
