Poetry camp in Singapore

Poets have set up camp in the middle of the city and they've asked all ye weary travellers to join them.

Word Forward is presenting the Silk Road Poetry Slam on Friday at the Sun Tent in front of Victoria Theatre as part of the ongoing Singapore Sun Festival.

The non-profit arts organisation, headed by poet Chris Mooney-Singh and his wife Savinder Kaur, is known for its monthly poetry readings at Zouk's Velvet Underground.

Australian Mooney-Singh, who is also a Singapore Permanent Resident, said the idea of holding poetry performances in tents dates back to the tradition of the caravanserai, a roadside inn where travellers converge. He also cited the Adelaide Writers Week in Australia, which is traditionally held in tents.
