Asia Creative Writing Programme

Keen to hone the art of creative writing? The Asia Creative Writing Programme (ACWP) is now open for registration!

A collaboration between National Arts Council (NAC) and the School of Humanities at Nanyang Technological University, ACWP looks to enrich creative writing education by expanding development opportunities for writers and translators, while deepening intercultural understanding within Singapore and across the region.

The programme hopes to nurture talent at different stages of writing careers, and ensure all have access to skills and resources needed to advance their creative practice in Singapore’s four official languages (Mandarin, English, Malay, Tamil). The programme also seeks to promote intercultural understanding and exchanges between translators and writers.

Check out the available workshops and mentorship sessions led by the Visiting Writers Rob Doyle, Deborah Smith and Aliette de Bodard. Limited slots are available for each session, register now at
