Learn how to reinterpret Asian mythology as a method for expressing ideas and analysing issues through poetry and prose with Natalie Wang and Crispin Rodrigues. Be exposed to a plethora of Asian myths as well as poems that reinterpret these myths as a manner of exploring issues of gender, class, race and nationality.

Participants are strongly encouraged to bring an Asian myth to the workshop. This can be in the form of a written text, or as oral history. Participants will then workshop these myths into poems or short prose.

This workshop is part of Open: Singapore Young Writers Lab, organised by Singapore Book Council.
