Young Authors Programme (online)


Is your child an aspiring author?

Do they dream about publishing and sharing their story with the world?

ASA is planning on launching the very first online edition of our beloved Young Authors Programme this November for children aged 6-12!

The Young Authors Programme has been a great way for children to write and publish their own stories. It remains one of our most successful and popular holiday programmes till date.

We are happy to accommodate students who might not be able to make it for our in-person sessions this year as well as those who live overseas.

We will be accepting submissions of your child’s samples. Selected children will get the chance to publish their very own books with the mentorship of a published author and illustrator. The programme will also include a soft copy version of the completed book.

The online edition of the Young Authors Programme will be held on:

📅 30th November, 4th December, 11th Dec, 16th Dec

🕰 2-4 PM SGT for all dates

🏡  Via Google Meet.

Cost: $450

The Application Process is as follows:

If you’re interested in our call for submissions, here’s what you should do:
1. Send us a short sample of your child’s writing (about 200 words) as well and an illustration sample (3-5 drawings which may not be related to the writing)
2. Email with the subject heading: Young Author’s Programme 2020 by 18th of November 2020

If your child is interested in creating their own mystical and magical worlds and writing and illustrating their stories, this is the best way for them to get to know the creative process.

Let them put themselves in the shoes of some of the greats- from Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Dickens to Jane Austen Virginia Woolf, and JK Rowling!

Our Young Authors programme will surely help your child discover their passion for authorship!

We are looking forward to welcoming our future Young Authors from all over the world this year!


Does your child dream of being a published author?

Do they want to share their stories with the world? Perhaps they might want to become the next Hemingway or JK Rowling?

Dreams can surely become reality!
