Thank you for participating in Text in The City poetry competition! All winners have been notified on 19 March 2015 via email.

Text in the City is a nation-wide campaign to boost the awareness and appreciation of Singapore poetry among Singaporeans.

Featuring more than 100 poems by some of Singapore’s most well-loved and emerging poets about various places in the country, the Text In The City mobile app invites users to uncover the stories and secrets surrounding the places, some of which have vanished from the Singapore landscape.

Take time to pen your very own poems for the places that you feel for. We are no longer accepting entries for the Text in the City poetry competition. However, feel free to continue to share your self-written poems on our mobile app and website.
