102.Between Consciousness, 2015i<x Between Consciousness won the top prize at the annual 24-Hour Playwrighting Competition, organised by TheatreWorks Writer’s Laboratory Writing & Community in partnership with the South East Community Development Council. Between Consciousness is an exploration of mental illness and society. The play itself is non-sequitur and crazy. It runs as two parallel stories; one tells about a father and his autistic child and another a mental health doctor coming to terms with expectations of his patients, family and the society. I’d like to think people have alter-egos between different consciousness in their minds and one can never can quite tell fantasy from reality.Languages: EnglishDepartments: English Language and LiteratureCategories: Play

105.Anima Methodi: The Poetics of Mirroring, Squircle Line Press, 2018i<x Invented by Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé and Eric Tinsay Valles, the anima methodi is a made-in-Singapore poetic form, comprising two stanzas of 16 lines, a volta, repetitions, and a meta sensibility. In this anthology, over 70 writers have engaged with the form, coming up with their own expressions of it. Some attempt as close a structural reflection of the formal requirements, while others create exciting variations through textual experimentation. Through its unique characteristics, the anima methodi allows great authorial introspection, while providing an open enough structure for authors to create intriguing innovations. Indeed, this anthology represents another rare collectible that pulls together poems of a distinctly unique poetic form.
