Curated around the theme “Island of Dreams”, this year’s Singapore Writers Festival features programmes that invite audiences to celebrate and reflect on our hopes and aspirations. The Festival celebrates Singapore’s milestone 50th anniversary,
exploring not only Singapore’s development in the last 50 years but also the dreams of our nation.
At the Festival, families can look forward to SWF3, otherwise known as SWF For Families. Previously Little Lit, there are now 51 SWF3 programmes, both FREE and ticketed, that span music, storytelling, different forms of play and reading targeted specifically at young children, young adults and their families. Even ticketed events are VERY REASONABLY PRICED!
Look out for storytelling events featuring professional tellers, such as Roger Jenkins, Kiran Shah, Sheila Wee, Karen Lee and Shalni Doshi, taking place each weekend! Littlest ones can listen to award-winning authors such as Chris Haughton, Sarah Mounsey and Emila Yusof, while older kids (7 to 12 years) can learn from Rob Cowen, Paro Anand, Lianne Ong, AJ Low and more. There will also be an event by the To S.I.R With Love team, suitable for children with dyslexia or visual impairment.
Not forgetting the teens (13+), the expanded SWF3 programme features a cool new Young Adult (YA) track, starring the likes of Rachel Hartman, Whiti Hereaka, Joyce Chng and Joyce Chua.
