Poetry is for everyone – especially if you like long bus rides and don’t mind having it read to you on your commute home
If you won’t make an effort to go read some poetry, then poetry is going to come to you. That seems to be the case in Singapore – we’ve seen poetry on the sidewalks, on the MRT, and now on your long bus ride. The team responsible for this? The team behind the non-profit organisation, Sing Lit Station, whose main mission is to grow the local literary community by throwing these pop-up poetry events.
Singapore Poetry on the Bus – Route 67, happening on June 4, will see a group of poets board the bus 67 from Tampines Interchange (headed for Choa Chu Kang Interchange) and conduct a poetry reading. Yep, during the ride, and on the bus.
And if you suddenly get inspired – whether it’s from the bus, a place you drove by, or anything bus-related really – you can chip in on the reading and wax lyrical with your own words. The literary bus ride begins at 1pm – get in line to spout some lines!
