Young Authors Programme (online)


Is your child an aspiring author?

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

Artistic Strategies Academy is launching our second online edition of our beloved Young Authors Programme this June for children aged 6 to 12, run by our founder, Claudine Fernandez!

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 to date.

As part of this programme, successful applicants will learn:

✅  How to plan and structure their original story

✅  Receive invaluable feedback from Claudine and their peers, guiding them to write their best story ever!

✅  The basic principles of illustrations for book publishing

✅  How to present and speak about their books confidently

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:

📅 8th, 11th, 15th, 18th June 2021 (Tuesdays and Fridays)

🕰 2–4 PM Singapore Time for all dates

🏡  Via Google Meet.

Cost: $350

Only 5 seats available

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 as an illustration sample (3-5 drawings which may not be related to the writing)
  2. Email it to by 31st of May 2021 with the subject heading: Young Authors Programme 2021
  3. Shortlisted applicants will be called up for an online interview.

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!
