Singapore Writers Festival is making every effort to ensure our events are as accessible as possible. Please e-mail if you have access requirements other than what is inlcluded here. 


Sign language interpreters and note-taking services are available over both weekends, 2, 3,9 and 10 November. Should you require either of these services, please e-mail with your name, contact number and preferred programme. As there are a fixed number of interpreters and note-takers, these services will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.


The sign language interpreters will use Singapore Sign Language (SgSL). Audience members requiring this service will be seated in a section closes to the interpreter to ensure good sightlines.


Guide Dogs are welcome to all Festival events at The Arts House and at the SWF Tent. Please e-mail us three days in advance at if you will be attending the Festival with your guide dog.
