About Silver Writing: Write Your Life Story

Silver Writing: Write Your Life Story is an eight-week workshop for senior citizens who are interested in writing their autobiographies.

When writing about our lives, it is most important to see that the story is interesting. There are many things, which we have all but forgotten as things have moved on, and our living styles have changed. Most of us live fairly ordinary lives, or, put another way, most of us do not make history, but all of us have lived through periods of enormous change.

Organised by The Arts House and in collaboration with U 3rd Age (University of the Third Age), the weekly workshops allow participants to explore different life themes that have been influential in shaping their lives. They will write two pages on each theme at home and bring their writings to share in a small group. Participants will learn skills in creative writing and how to shape and structure their stories for dramatic effect.

At the end of the workshop, they will get to share their final works in a public showcase.

Silver Writing ~ Your Own Folk Tale

Silver Writing aims to provide lifelong learning for senior citizens through the art of creative writing. This 10-session programme is especially catered for seniors who are interested in writing and storytelling.

Organised by The Arts House in collaboration with U 3rd Age (University of the Third Age), the weekly workshops provide seniors with the basic tools of creative writing, as well as 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! Seniors will also get a chance to read their completed works in a special showcase at the end of the programme at The Arts House.

This pilot programme uses fairytale and folk tale as a starting point for the writing exercises. Drawing on the stories they grew up with, seniors can learn to craft them into a story and tell them to their grandchildren.
