Singapore Writers Festival For Families 2016


{Event listing : Singapore Writers Festival For Families 2016} 

If you’re planning to do something exciting with your kids and have some fun family time during the November holidays, Singapore Writers Festival promises 10 days of diverse, enriching and entertaining family-friendly programmes, for kids as young as 2 up to young adults!

Encouraging literacy among the young is one of its key initiatives. So why not do it the fun way?

Here are the top picks for SWF3 (SWF FOR FAMILIES) programmes:


3-6 years old


12 Nov, Sat 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM, 60mins, Empress Lawn

Spices are magical, mysterious and enticing but did you know they have superpowers too? Join Namita and Heetal as they take you on a spicy adventure through storytelling and a hands-on spice blend creation experience. Materials will be provided and you’ll each take home a spice blend to cook with. This session is perfect for picky and not-so-picky eaters. For ages 3 to 6. Kids, bring your parents!


7-12 years old


6 Nov, Sun 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM, 60min, Empress Lawn

What happens when two popular fictional characters—plucky Alice-Miranda and funny boy Amos Lee—collide? Find out when their creators, Jacqueline Harvey and Adeline Foo, meet in person to chat about their characters’ exciting adventures and the world of children’s literature in general.


Ages 4 and above

On 6 and 13 Nov, get ready for the festival’s first-ever battle — on paper, that is. Illustrators Gemma Correll and Stephanie Wong, Mark Pett and Darel Seow will draw their pencils (or pens or markers) and go head-to-head in this face-off. You can contribute ideas and your vote will decide who wins! This is an opportunity not to be missed as it’s an interesting take between local and international illustrators.

There are many more programmes for you to choose from at the Singapore Writers Festival website. With more than 40 programmes and award-winning international writers, there’s definitely something for everyone in the family! Book your tickets now here.
