tWord brings together students interested in creative writing to give them a conducive space to write. Our regular sessions focus on a topic of the week from which students can draw inspiration and work on in their own writing. At the end of each session, students can choose to share their work and request for comments or critique. tWord also aims to make poetry and creative writing more accessible to the general student body, and organises writing workshops and Student’s Teas with writers.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
