[ Workshops with two parts require participants to sign up for BOTH workshops. ]


3rd -- Writing workshop with Verena Tay :
Timeless Tales -- Bringing Yesterday's Stories into Today (Part I)

7.30 pm ~ 9.30 pm @ BooksActually

Ancient folk tales, fables, myths and legends, that are still being read or told today, have stood the
test of time as their content and story structures still resonate with audiences today. When we do
our own creative writing, sometimes it can be useful for us to draw inspiration from these old stories,
instead of trying in vain to devise new plotlines and themes to capture what we want to say.

Using various Aesop’s fables as examples, Verena Tay will share with you tips and tricks on how
you can rework the structural elements of these stories to develop a fresh piece of writing before you
reinterpret a traditional myth/legend/folktale of your choice.



* NOTE *

~ This workshop is open to both new and seasoned fiction writers.
It will be conducted over two sessions to allow participants to develop
and refine a short text, thereby deepening their grasp of the principles shared.
