Blackout Poetry Workshop with Jennifer Anne Champion
Saturday, 10 April and Saturday, 17 April
3.30 PM – 5.00 PM
Join Singaporean performance poet and author Jennifer Anne Champion in this blackout poetry workshop, where you are invited to discover the power of redaction and experiment with structure and form.
This workshop is held in collaboration with Sing Lit Station, in conjunction with STPI’s current exhibition, Heman Chong: Peace Prosperity And Friendship With All Nations.
Jennifer Anne Champion is a writer and performance poet of mixed heritage. She has been described by Juice Magazine as gifted with “swift, animated style” and by her critics as “a sensitive, conservative-radical, sometimes socially conscious poet struggling to be heard, even perhaps survive in the midst of this often less than thoughtful, less than kind postcolonial city-state” (Cha Journal). She has two collections of poetry and has been published in Quarterly Literary Review of Singapore, Esquire magazine and The Straits Times newspaper.
Jennifer received a BA Honours degree in English Literature with a minor in Communications and New Media from the National University of Singapore. She is currently an educator in literary arts and performance for various institutions, including Sing Lit Station, and is researching a manuscript on poetry, tactile art and embroidery.
