Lit Up: PROGRESSION, 19-21 July

I'm involved in the Lit Up Indie Arts Festival, coming up this weekend - click here for the website, or below for the programme.

And how am I involved, you ask? Why, I'm helping performance artist Lee Wen carry out an idea he's had for a while: a durational 24-hour reading of Singapore literature, from Sat 20 Jul 7pm to Sun 21 Jul 7pm at the Courtyard!

We're also putting together an installation made of local lit books - am preparing to bring over my collection soon (below is a small portion thereof).

If you're a local writer, please come to me (if I'm on duty at the time) and give me some of your own writing, and I'll read it for 3 minutes or so. Or you could bring work from one of your favourite local playwrights, poets, fiction or non-fiction writers - I'm not picky.

I may, of course, be woefully sleepy when the time comes. Hope I can still do your treasured work of literature justice!

UPDATE: In total, I'm bringing 390 individual books in five suitcases and a backpack. Count
