When Sinophone meets ASEAN

ASEAN has 10 country members and 11 official languages, boasting a diverse range of literatures and cultures. However, among these countries, only Singapore uses Chinese as an official language. When our Chinese language authors meet their counterparts from Southeast Asia, how do they interact? And how much do these writers, writing in different languages, know about Chinese literature in Singapore?

Featuring Chia Joo Ming, Winner - S.E.A. Write Award 2017

Moderated by Tan Yu Xin (SPH)

This session will be conducted in Mandarin.

Supported by The Arts House.

ABOUT THE S.E.A. WRITE TALKS 2020

The S.E.A. Write Talks are a series of public conversations featuring recipients of the S.E.A. Write Awards 2016-2018: Ovidia Yu, Chia Joo Ming and Peter Augustine Goh. The conversations focus on each author's body of work and their writing journeys.

ABOUT THE S.E.A. WRITE AWARD

Since 1979, the S.E.A. Write Award, or the Southeast Asian Writers Award, has been presented annually to poets and writers in Southeast Asia.

The awards are given to a writer from a country that is part of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) though not all countries in ASEAN have been represented every year. The award is sometimes given for a specific work by an author and sometimes awarded for lifetime achievement. The types of honoured works vary, and have included poetry, short stories, novels, plays, folklore, and scholarly and religious works.

The ten countries which comprise the ASEAN region are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, The Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
