A bit of shameless self-promotion…
I’m thrilled and honored to be a part of Words Go Round 2012, the Singapore Writers Festival School Programme. WGR runs from February 27, 2012 to March 10, 2012 and offers students and teachers a chance to get up close and personal with their favorite writers.
I’ll be conducting two writing workshops: Shades of Gray: Writing About Race and I Have a Dream: Writing for Social Change. Both are suitable for the secondary school and/or junior college classroom. The former workshop discusses writing as a vehicle for discussing and deconstructing race and a bridge to understand and overcome our differences. The latter workshop sees writing as a form of activism and recognizes the role of words in building a movement for social change.

The festival also boasts several public events, including an evening with Garth Nix, author of the brilliant Abhorsen trilogy, on February 9, 2012 from 7-8pm at The Arts House. More information here.
