Just a heads up: I’ll be speaking at the upcoming WriteCamp Singapore 2011 on “Singapore Literature: Where we should be going”.
In the talk – which I’m giving in my own personal capacity – I’ll discuss:
- Why Singapore Literature needs to be taught in Singapore schools,
- Why this hasn’t been happening, and
- What Singaporean writers should do to reverse this trend.
When is WriteCamp and what’s it about? From the SWF website:
Date: Sat, 29 Oct 2011
Time: 2pm – 6pm
Venue: Seminar Rooms 1 and 2, National Museum of Singapore
Price of Admission: FREE!
WriteCamp is SWF’s take on the “unconference” – a dynamic, user-generated series of workshops and talks where presenters share their knowledge to small, passionate audiences.
Each session is typically 30 minutes, with two or three sessions running concurrently so that audiences have the luxury of choice while speakers have to keep their talks snappy and insightful.
Topics can cover the craft of writing, tips on publishing, or other writing-related subjects.
Apart from fun networking and the buzz of spontaneous creativity, Writecamp promises to shed new light on writers and writing too!

Please join me, either as a listener or as a speaker, if you can. You can sign up for the event here or browse the SWF website for more details.
See you there!
