SingPoWriMo 2016 
edited Joshua Ip, Daryl Qilin Yam & Ruth Tang

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 first gave the Internet in 2014. In its third year, our anthology gathers the best of the 5,110 poems that were submitted in 2016. Daily challenging prompts reflected on the Singaporean condition, with verses written for every MRT and LRT station, poems that upgraded other poems that upgraded other poems and so on. We are proud to feature first-time poets beside established bards, a wide swath of language —with poems in Minion next to poems in HTML — and the recently-revived form of the udaiyaathathu alongside the ground-breaking twin cinema and asingbol.

SingPoWriMo 2017
edited Stephanie Chan, Ruth Tang & Daryl Qilin Yam

The 2017 anthology of SingPoWriMo seeks to be a little different. With nearly 6, 000 thousand members on Facebook and several hundred active participants, editors Stephanie Dogfoot, Ruth Tang and Daryl Qilin Yam have whittled all the submissions they have received down to a selection of 100 poems, written by a list of 68 poets both emerging and established, prolific and never-published-before.

Encounter the likes of flying comets, rude Singaporean uncles, HDB Rapunzels and odes to forgotten spaces in these pages, written in a dizzying array of forms including the ever popular twin cinema, the challenging udaiyaathathu, and the very recently discovered anima methodi. What can we say?
