Utter is an annual Singapore Writers Festival initiative which showcases the best of Singapore writing and celebrates its potential to be adapted into different media and across languages, giving audiences fresh perspectives and a deeper understanding of our home-grown authors. In this year's edition, Utter 2017: SingLit Unearthed, we highlight the remarkable poetry and stories of four highly-distinguished writers—JM Sali, Gregory Nalpon, Tan Swie Hian, and former deputy prime minister S. Rajaratnam. They have been adapted with nuance and sensitivity by veterans K. Rajagopal and Lee Thean-jeen into live-action short films, and with boundless imagination by Henry and Harry Zhuang, and Jerrold Chong into animation shorts, respectively.

Utter 2017 celebrates Singapore writers published before 1986. Come hear from the writers, directors and producers on the joys and challenges of adapting SingLit.
