I have enjoyed helping organise Graphic Medicine workshops over the last few months at Sing Lit Station. It’s encouraging see the level of engagement from participants. A big thanks to Klarissa and Olivia, Prof Graham, Don and James for their work on this project.
We are looking for funding to continue the workshops next year so please do contact me if you are interested in helping out.
Sing Lit Station’s second Prose Manuscript Bootcamp was held from 3-5 August 2018 at 3A Jalan Kubor with campers, Hidhir Razak (a novel "Kemunting"), Aleithia Low (a creative non-fiction text "Written By Light"), Jocelyn Suarez (a novel "The Literature Historian") and Annabel Tan (a short story collection "Potted Jungle").
I was honoured to be a judge at the camp with Yu-Mei Balasingamchow and Wena Poon.
Well done to Tse Hao Guang on a very well organised event, and a big thank you to all the panellists. At the end of the weekend the other long listed writers joined the camp.
