It has been a bumper month for poetry, with six books from two publishers.

Math Paper Press published Echolocation by rising voice Mani Rao and I Didn't Know Mani Was A Conceptualist by Desmond Kon, who this month beat 31 other international poets to win the Poetry World Cup contest organised by influential Pakistan-based literary magazine The Missing Slate.

Landmark Books meanwhile launched four books from established writers Lee Tzu Pheng, Paul Tan and Gwee Li Sui, each of whom breaks a long silence with their verses.

Singapore Writers Festival director Tan's Seasonal Disorders/Impractical Lessons comes eight years after his third collection, First Meeting Of Hands.
