Writing: A Liminal Art September 2, 2019
Writing transforms experience into knowledge and emotion into wisdom. I curated and hosted a night to explore what it means to write in 2019. Four writers – Eunice Andrada, Manisha Anjali, Jamie Marina Lau, and Bella Li – showcased their works, and discussed the craft of writing as an art of metamorphosis.

EWF x LIMINAL: Interstitial
Salman Rushdie notes that the diasporic identity is “plural and partial” – sometimes we straddle two cultures, and other times, we fall between two stools. What does it mean to be both? What could it mean to stand on the hyphen that connects and separates; to build a self within interstitial space?
A LIMINAL poetry night, to explore this idea through poetry, prose and comics. Featuring artists Rachel Ang, Heather Joan Day, Peo Michie, Darlene Silva Soberano and Jessie Tu, and hosted by Leah Jing.

Writing & Photography Workshop
You have a story to tell, but how do you draw your reader in? From constructing the perfect interview, to photographing your subjects, to picking the perfect image, the visual story you tell can be just as vital as the words on the page.
Liminal team Leah Jing & Adolfo Aranjuez ran a free, three-hour workshop, to help emerging writers sharpen their interview skills and learn about visual storytelling.
