Manuscript Bootcamp 2023 (Poetry)

In the fifth edition of Manuscript Bootcamp (Poetry), six finalists will have their work critiqued by a selection of Singapore’s most preeminent and influential poets. As always, Bootcamp will take place over an intense weekend, designed to take our finalists through the stages of (poetic) revision, thinking through core aspects of poetic technique while also learning to identify the through-lines of their poetry collections. 

In an aim to make our programme more inclusive, we will be making certain provisions to the way we run Manuscript Bootcamp. First, we will continue to allow longlisted applicants to sit in, observe and participate in the weekend’s activities. Second, while we will not turn away published writers or previous Bootcamp finalists from submitting to Manuscript Bootcamp, we will ensure that two-thirds of our finalists will always comprise writers who are either unpublished or who have yet to publish a full-length manuscript; in the case of Manuscript Bootcamp 2023 (Poetry), this will amount to four of such writers out of our expected total of six.

The 2023 edition of Manuscript Bootcamp will be open for submissions of poetry manuscripts from 15 Mar to 14 May, 2359 hours, for a Bootcamp on 1-3 September. For more details on our selection criteria and other matters, visit our website.
