Sound of Mind: A Teacher-Writers Anthology of Poems and Prompts

This is an exciting offering of poems from a constellation of teacher-writers, including published and familiar authors such as Ann Ang, Ken Mizusawa, Eric Tinsay Valles, Christine Chia, Patricia Maria Tan, Heng Siok Tian, David Leo and Oliver Seet.


What makes this anthology worth the reader's precious time is more than the poets' acuity of perception, and their particularities of style; being educators, they have contributed with a view to inspiring the reader's imagination. The poems have been arranged in a manner to stimulate the creative writer in each and every reader. The English Language Institute of Singapore is proud to present this debut collection by teacher-writers in Singapore.

Reviews

"In a world in which the young are more and more drawn into technology-induced isolation where much is received second-hand, and the real world increasingly-- in real time -- shut out, these poems offered by teachers make their point. In themselves they offer students things to see and ponder away from the smart phones and ipads; occasions to connect with minds and sensibilities that have spoken from first-hand encounters, deploying the powers of language and the imagination to present human and unique experiences." - Anne Lee Tzu Pheng, Poet and Singapore Cultural Medallion Winner

"Penned with a touch of local flavour and context, the poems within the book are relatable and closer to the heart. These poetry artworks, contributed by our very own local teacher-writers, examined and expressed life in Singapore, providing an insightful contrast between the lifestyle of the past and present." - Faith Khong, npTribune
