  • My Life, My Story: Memoir Writing Workshop

Last year, I conducted a memoir writing workshop-cum-editing process on behalf of the National Library Board that led to the publication of the chapbook, entitled My Life, My Story: Personal Narratives by Singapore's Seniors, launched during Read! Singapore 2015. NLB has invited me to conduct another workshop that will take place between on Monday afternoons between 22 Feb to 28 Mar 2016 at Bishan Library. Registrations have closed for the workshop.
