AFCC School Outreach

Date: 29 May – 5 Jun 2015
FOR:: Schools that would like to invite the AFCC Speakers for workshops or meet-the-author/illustrator sessions.
Interested schools can contact Denise at [email protected].

Just for Schools is about reading and writing, books and writers. It's eclectic, exciting, entertaining and thought provoking. The Asian Festival of Children`s Content (AFCC) offers schools the opportunity to engage with internationally renowned writers and illustrators in the classroom.

Each year, AFCC brings to Singapore a group of talented writers with a wealth of information to share with students – from creating comics from day-to-day experiences to writing mysteries. The names and details of our speakers can be found on the AFCC 2015 Speakers page.
