Singapore Literature Project

The Singapore Literature Project is intended to encourage a culture of reading, especially of Singapore literature, and creative thinking among students. The purpose of the programme is to encourage the reading of Singapore literature by students with their teachers and local authors. Active participation of the programme is made possible through reading of set texts, responding to the texts through activities, and participating in a dialogue-cum-workshop with the authors.

Below are photos from a recent workshop.
