SWF3 (Singapore Writers Festival for Families) returns in November with storytelling and writing events for toddlers to teens (many of them free!)

Calling all bookworms and wordsmiths! It’s one of our favourite times of the year: the return of the Singapore Writers Festival, an annual highlight on the cultural calendar that brings the world’s major literary talents to Singapore (David Sedaris is coming this year! Yayayayayay!) and is one of the globe’s few multilingual literary festivals. This year’s festival will be on from 2 to 11 November.

Here at Sassy Mama we are of course extra big fans of SWF3 (Singapore Writers Festival for Families, starts 3 November), which aims to encourage a love for stories and books in kiddos while sparking the imagination and nurturing young authors.

This year’s iteration offers over 30 – mostly FREE – events specially geared toward families!

SWF3 has a wide range of events for children from as young as two years of age, while also offering special sessions for tweens and teens, including a new ‘writing camp’ for kids ages 9-14 with a workshop and a talk from both Singaporean and international writers. If you’ve got a mini foodie or an aspiring mystery writer on your hands, these workshops are not to be missed!

We love that that SWF3 strives to be more inclusive, as it also offers programmes especially designed for children with special needs such as ASD and Down Syndrome.

Whether your kiddo is football-mad, is an aspiring botanist, likes their storytelling with a side of kampung games, or wants to see Singapore history come to life with a trishaw ride, there’s sure to be something on to spark their imagination (and make for a wonderful family day out)!
