ForeWord x SWF POP #23: The Lyrical Muse


2 Feb 2018, 7:45 PM - 8:15 PM




Music and literature share a symbiotic relationship. How does music inspire one’s writing, and how do lyrics and one’s reading diet relate to a musician’s craft? In this special SWF POP programme presented by the Singapore Writers Festival, two unlikely writer-musician pairings exchange views and meditate on the ways that literature and music have influenced their works.

Kickstart your February with conversations between writers and musicians as they delve into the intricate interplay between words and music.
