YOUNG AUTHOR SCHEME
Singapore’s first-ever scheme to train young authors, from as young as eight years old
We build character, improve confidence and discover the creative potential of every child.
We build Asia’s next generation of thinkers and writers while creating a library of children’s literature for the region.
We build the values of helping others through education, especially children who are under-privileged and disenfranchised.
Embark on a 360-degree tour into our world of education, publishing and social responsibility. Then travel the time tunnel from 2003 to 2021 ….. and be amazed at the incredible talent of the next generation of thinkers and writers!
Unique English Classroom
Created by writers for young writers, we provide the tools for your child to create their own unique story.
I Love English!
Aspiring Writers & Illustrators Scheme
Young Author Scheme (Junior and Advanced)
The ultimate destination where your child writes their own book! From in-depth characterisation to story structure, Veteran author Catherine Khoo and her team of published authors will guide and mentor your child to craft their very own stories. Many of its students have seen their own books published in various mediums available in all NLB branches. The YAS preludes the annual Young Author Award, supported by MDA, NLB, NBDCS and the Singapore Book Publishers Association.
Suitable for 8 & above
The Young Author Awards (YAA) is recognised regionally and endorsed by the Media Development Authority (MDA), the National Library Board (NLB), the Singapore Book Publishers Association (SBPA) and the National Book Development Council of Singapore (NBDCS).
We believe in giving back to society selflessly. Through various projects and causes, we look towards cultivating a healthy respect for the people in our community and to encourage an understanding that we are all global citizens with a responsibility towards our planet and its inhabitants.
