The inaugural Singapore National Poetry Festival (NPF) is set to celebrate the island’s poetry in all its four official languages through readings and reflections by both established and emerging poets from July 24 to 26 at LASALLE College of the Arts at 1 McNally St, Singapore 187940.

The first platform of its kind in recent years to celebrate the whole range of Singapore poetry, the NPF is mainly organised by poets writing in the four different languages — Eric Tinsay Valles, K. Kanagalatha, Azhar Ibrahim, Tan Chee Lay — with the support of Cultural Medallion winner Edwin Thumboo, educators Michelle Loh, Khoo Lilin, Ian Chung, Kevin Hing, Zachary Tan and student volunteers. NPF will also hold readings and other events at the National Library, Gardens by the Bay, the Grassroots Bookshop and the Gan Heritage Centre.
