Raffles is one of Singapore’s leading High Schools, and we convened eight students from section 3 and 4 of their ‘bicultural program’ to translate contemporary Singaporean and classical Chinese poetry. Discover new voices from the South East Asian metropolis with these four poems: Left, Medical history, Legacy, Waking up at night.

Singapore’s unique mix of languages and cultures – in particular, the strong presence of Mandarin and English – make it a particularly fitting place for our activities, and we look forward to more involvement with local writers, schools and bilinguals!
