Exclusive: Making Memories into Poetry with Amanda Chong

Sunday, 25 November
4pm to 6pm
Apple Orchard Road

Join poet Amanda Chong and explore how photographs can evoke memories that inspire creative writing, as Apple celebrates The Art of Words. You’ll discover how to shape your experiences into fragments of a poem and building up verses piece by piece. Then you’ll get hands-on with iPad and Apple Pencil to craft an expressive poem based on a photo of your own. Bring your own devices or Apple can provide them.

This session is part of Apple’s The Art of Words series featuring Amanda Chong, Cloudhedd, Deborah Emmanuel, Haresh Sharma, Lilian Lee, Mye De Leon, Nathaniel Ong and Rachel Koh.
