瘟疫词典: 接力一首实在的虚拟情诗 An Epidemic Dictionary: Relaying A Truly Virtual Love Poem




How do we write about the loss and separation during the profound isolation of an epidemic? What about the love and care that just may go unnoticed in our everyday routine, especially in a confined household? Facilitated by award-winning poet-scholar-artist Tan Chee Lay, and with each participant contributing individualised poetic entries, we might just be able to edit our mini virtual love dictionary of this epidemic.



Writer-artist Tan Chee Lay is Associate Professor of Chinese at the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, with a PhD in Chinese literature from Cambridge University. A recipient of the Golden Point Award, Young Artist Award, Singapore Youth Award, Dr Tan Tsze Chor Art Award, he has published over 20 creative writing and academic books, including Landmark Poetics of the Lion City, which won the 2018 Singapore Literature Prize.
