This anthology showcases a representative sample of Singapore poetry written in or translated into English, our common language, in 2015 and 2016. Several poets who published collections during that period or were featured in the National Poetry Festival ﴾NPF﴿ 2015 were invited to contribute to this anthology. The emerging poets in this volume have been winners or finalists in NPF’s National Poetry Competition over the past two years.
The poems have been arranged according to the themes of NPF, namely “Home, Nationhood and Identity" ﴾2015﴿ and “Reflections” ﴾2016﴿. Some poems are originally in English and others translated from Chinese, Malay and Tamil.
