last year for Singapore Writers Festival i laosaied my way out of multiple panels for the first time. SWF is always a terok season so this year i begged new festival director Pooja Nansi to go easy on me for scheduling, and just use me a reserve who can plug into random panels when other ppl laosai.
instead, this is what i got:
<Generation Gap: Koh Tai Ann x Joshua Ip>
Sat 9 Nov 11am-12pm, Blue Room, The Arts House (Festival Pass)
-> In which I get upbraided for 1 hour by one of the most formidable literary ladies to walk the face of Pulau NTU
<Issues in Men's Writing>
with Neil Humphreys and Darryl Whetterwriter, mod Amanda Chong
Sat 9 Nov 3pm-4pm, Chamber, The Arts House (Festival Pass)
-> In which I get upbraided for 1 hour by the even more formidable junior version of Koh Tai Ann, with two other unwitting men who are about to, alongside me, have a new arsehole torn where their scrotum currently resides
<Launch of 11 x 9: Collaborative Poetry from the Philippines and Singapore>
Sun 3 Nov 3-4pm, Gallery II, The Arts House (Free)
mod by Martin Villanueva and Joshua Ip
-> in which we get to launch a book with many other happy people who will be doing most of the talking. yay!
<Navigating the SEA>
Sun 3 Nov 730pm-830pm, Rooftop Studios 1-4, National Gallery Singapore (Festival Pass)
Martin Villanueva, Christine Chia, Pauline Fan, mod by Joshua Ip
-> in which other happy people talk about Southeast Asia while I just ask questions. yay!
find me around the house, i'll be wandering around all day looking destroyed. there is apparently a festival bar this year, which will be necessary.
