Organised by Poetry Festival Singapore, the Singapore Literature Conference is slated to take place on 29 July 2023 (Saturday). The conference, currently in its fourth year, is now calling for abstracts of papers that are in any way related to the theme of "Sojourners." The deadline for submissions is 31 October 2022 (Monday).

We are interested in papers that explore the theme in poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and drama about Singapore and Southeast Asia from a wide range of perspectives and disciplines. The sessions will be on the following sub-themes: (1) community building in the public sphere, (2) diversity and plurality in literature and the other arts, (3) youths and the future, and (4) issues in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

 We welcome papers in English, Chinese, Malay, or Tamil, and we look forward to your abstracts.
