Sign up for a free poetry-themed walking trail and explore the Bras Basah area through the eyes and words of local poets such as Edwin Thumboo, Alvin Pang and Alfian Sa'at! Visit the places that have inspired our poets, and listen to these poets recite their own poems. This programme is held in conjunction with the launch of the first mobile app focused entirely on Singapore poetry and places, Text In The City (to download, search for “Text In The City”). 


About Text in the City
Text in the City is a nation-wide campaign to boost the awareness and appreciation of Singapore poetry among Singaporeans. Featuring more than 100 poems by some of Singapore’s most well-loved and emerging poets about various places in the country, the Text In The City mobile app invites users to uncover the stories and secrets surrounding the places, some of which have vanished from the Singapore landscape. 

Many poems of places in Singapore, past and present, are yet unwritten. Be part of the movement to contribute to Singapore’s literary legacy and contribute your poem here!
