Spontaneously quoting poetry has its perks. Perhaps you’ve been wanting to channel your inner Robin Williams after watching Dead Poets Society? Listen to some of Singapore's foremost poets recite their favourite poems from memory and talk about why you might want to keep a poem or two at the back of your mind  because who knows when you might need an inspirational speech or a literary mic-drop?

This programme is co-presented with Poetry Festival Singapore and includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
