  1. Hi, I am writing to ask if this year’s anthology will be launched on Wednesday’s closing event? And for people who have been notified that their poems are selected into the anthology, are there any updates, and notifications about which poems got selected?

    Kind regards,


    • Hi Wanling, yes we will be launching the anthology at the closing event on Wednesday. Prior to this event we don’t release any details regarding the selected poems for the anthology. Hope to see you there 🙂
