POETRY OPEN CALL
Sometimes, only words can reveal our deepest motivations. Words reveal, unveil, and expose our innermost desires and feelings. Only then can we even faintly hope to get a glimpse of ourselves at our most vulnerable, and real moments.
All are invited to submit poems for Poetry Festival Singapore with the theme: Catharsis.
"Sometimes what we call tragedy, at least in the theater, are really case histories. They're based on the central figure, and things happen to that person, and they're called tragedy because they're extremely sad. But tragedy always has a glorious thing happen at the end of it. That's what the catharsis is." - Derek Walcott
The writers of the best submissions will perform their works at The Arts House on Saturday, 28 July 2018.
- Only English language poems are acceptable at this point.
- Between 8 to maximum 40 lines
- Open to all in Singapore
Submission Deadline: 30 June 2018.
Selected poets will be informed by: 10 July 2018
Looking forward to your entries.
