Contemplations: Religion, Myth & History
How does a poet or fictionist engage with history, myth or religion to create a great literary work? What of the author’s own belief or spirituality — how is that navigated along with art creation? What are the challenges and highlights of such intriguing work? Poet Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé facilitates this illuminating panel discussion, featuring eminent authors Gwee Li Sui, Krishna Udayasankar, and Nuraliah Norasid. The first twenty participants each receives a complimentary journal with a limited-edition broadside.
