Singapore International Storytelling Festival 2012 – Come and Be Enchanted

From traversing the unmapped territories of children’s content in Asia, we are led back to the oral tradition of storytelling as we brace ourselves for yet another vibrant festival here in the region. People from the National Book Development Council, Book Council, and The Arts House present the Singapore International Storytelling Festival to be held from 1-5 September 2012.

Apart from the live performances from world-class talents, there is also an International Storytellers Showcase and the Asian Congress of Storytellers where delegates would get a chance to familiarize themselves with the new trends and practices in the art of storytelling.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
