MTW: Creative Writing Workshop with Samuel

10 Apr 2017

Varying narrative perspectives and crafting a descriptive setting, these were skills taught to 10 upper primary students from Lakeside Before and After School Care (Jurong West) on 3 and 10 April 2017.

Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan scholar, Samuel Wee returned to volunteer with Tan Chin Tuan Foundation (TCTF) following positive responses from his workshops last year. He tapped, once again, upon his educational background in Literature to conduct a creative writing workshop under TCTF’s More Than Words programme.

Over two sessions, the students stretched their imagination to enhance their writing. They were taught methods on how to craft an immersive setting in stories, the difference between first and third person narratives and crafted their very own lune poems. After which, the children took turns to present their work to their peers and were empowered to build confidence in their reading and writing abilities.
