Contemplating Mortality: Writing About Illness & Death Workshop

by Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé



Death and illness are difficult things to write about. In understanding both as universal phenomena for all of us, we are moved to contemplate their presence, their importance. Beyond denial and taboo, there is a vast good that arrives with such coming to terms. There is great comfort in reflection, honesty, succour, and acceptance. Join Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé in this safe and open workshop space, where participants share their own insights on how to navigate these complex subjects. The first 15 participants will receive a complimentary copy of the quasi-memoir, The Good Day I Died.


To prioritise the health and well-being of our guests, please take note that we will be conducting temperature screening at the event. If you are feeling unwell or have travelled/just returned from China, South Korea, Iran, Northern Italy and Japan in the past two weeks, we seek your understanding to observe the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Health. Thank you.
