Singapore Writers Festival
2013 School Programme
25 February – 9 March 2013
The Singapore Writers Festival is back and jumps right into the school year with Words Go Round 2013!
One of the few literary festivals in the world that is multi-lingual, focusing on the official languages of Singapore – English, Malay, Chinese and Tamil – the Festival brings literary talents from Singapore and around the world to share with you their ideas, stories and lives. Back from another successful year, the Festival promises the same lively writers, stimulating discussions and exciting interactions.
Every year, as part of our year round activities leading up to the main Festival (to be held in November 2013), we organise Words Go Round – the Singapore Writers Festival 2013 school programme – which brings writers into the schools to meet students face-to-face and inspire our next generation of writers and readers. It gives all students in Singapore the unique opportunity to meet both local and international authors up-close and personal, through talks, workshops and interactive sessions.
All events under Words Go Round (except for the Talks and Workshops for Teachers) are under the National Arts Council Arts Education Programme (www.nac.gov.sg/aep) and are eligible for the Tote Board Arts Grant subsidy.
