Description

Why should we bother with BuySingLit? How should we cultivate a new generation of SingLit writers?  Join this series of talks, workshops, book launch and movie screening, presented by City Book Room, as local writers discuss the challenges of creating literary works in Chinese and English in Singapore.

The programmes bring together local writers including Tan Chee Lay, Li Qingsong, Liusu, Zhou Hao, Teo Kok Keong, Liu Chang, Neo Hai Bin, Chang Ta Seah, playwright Alfian Sa’at as well as literary group, Text & Image Studies Society. They will discuss a wide range of topics, such as fiction writing, text appreciation, imagination and the uniqueness of SingLit.

A special screening of the short film The Veiled Willow by independent local director Eva Tang will be held on the opening night on 9 Mar. The short film is adapted from “Chef Tam”, a short story by renowned local writer, Soon Ai Ling. These programmes are in Mandarin and English.

 

新文学青年

都说这是个“文青”的大热时代,从文学阅读和创作、小说改编电影,甚至文图学的角度来看,“文青”到底意味着什么?

延续 2017 年“新文学青年”的主题,配合由新加坡国家艺术理事会发起、策划的“#BuySingLit”活动,城市书房将在 3 月 9 日至 11 日,一连三天举行“新文学青年 2.0”,继续叩问文学和文青的关系,集合本地中青代写作人,如陈志锐、Alfian Sa’at、李青松、流苏、周昊、张国强、刘畅、梁海彬、谢征达、文学团体文图学会等探讨文学课题如:小说创作与欣赏、狮城地标诗学漫步、情欲书写的“轻”与“重”、诗歌研究与创作的关系、文图学等等。

本地独立电影人邓宝翠,将在“新文学青年 2.0”开幕夜放映自本地小说家孙爱玲短篇小说《谭家师父》的改编电影《柳影袈裟》,分享小说改编电影的过程。
