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.
