Creative Writing in Silver
Creative Writing in Silver is programmed by The Arts House in collaboration with U 3rd Age (University of the Third Age) to provide lifelong learning for senior citizens in the art of creative writing. This 10-session programme is especially catered for seniors who are interested in writing and storytelling.
The weekly workshops provide seniors with the basic tools of creative writing and opportunities to visit Singapore’s historical places of interest to gain inspiration for their writing. They will also get to meet both local and international writers with a special trip to the Singapore Writers Festival in November!
This pilot programme uses fairytale and folk tales as a starting point for the writing exercises. Reminiscing about the stories they grew up with, seniors can learn to craft them into a story and tell them to their grandchildren.
Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions.
