Singaporeans love to eat. Whether you are a gourmand or a gourmet, the taste and smells of food excite each one of us. So why not use our chow to nourish our creative writing as well?
Drawing inspiration from our daily diet/favourite grub/disliked dishes, this workshop will help you generate new text that reveals what food means to us and that is infused with unexpected textures to grab the imagination of our readers.
Target Participants:Open to both new and seasoned writers who are fluent in English.
- Please bring pen/pencil and paper or laptop for the writing exercises.
- If possible, please bring a sample of the food that excites you the most. (Unfortunately, durians are not allowed, lest the smell causes discomfort to other participants.)
