The Book Council organises festivals, workshops and events related to writing, publishing, storytelling, reading and many more. To stay updated, join us on our various platforms. The Singapore Book Council Academy, our training arm, has a comprehensive website for the workshops.
The calendar also lists local literary events that are not organised by us. Know of an event that should be listed here? Let us know!
The Academy runs short courses, workshops and master classes in publishing, writing, reading and storytelling. Our workshops meet the training needs of professionals and the wider public. Our local and international trainers from countries such as the United Kingdom, United States and Australia are established, credible professionals from the literary arts and publishing field.
#BuySingLit is an industry-led movement to celebrate stories from Singapore. Advocating ‘Buy Local, Read Our World’, homegrown book publishers, retailers and literary non-profits have come together to encourage more people to discover and embrace Singapore’s literature.
