Sing Lit Station is a registered charity and Institution of Public Character (IPC). Our vision is to be a platform where readers and writers can meet.
Our core mission is to serve the local literary community of writers and readers, through:
creating a space for writers to grow their artistic and professional lives;
inviting readers to explore our literary culture;
working with many partners to build inclusive and dynamic communities.
Sing Lit Station’s flagship programmes include our workshop-for-schools programme Book A Writer, our community challenge / writing forum SingPoWriMo, our annual Manuscript Bootcamp and editorial imprint Ten Year Series targeted at writers near publication, and the regional Hawker Prize.
As a physical space, Sing Lit Station serves as a writer’s centre – an abode for literary creation. We host a half-year writing residency and masterclasses from visiting writers to give writers a space to create and showcase themselves. We also pioneer peer-led workshop groups as a model for literary growth, hosting monthly peer-run writing groups consisting of practicing and aspiring writers, migrant workers, queer folk and more, and more facilitated communities such as Writing The City. We also rent out office and events space, with discounts for creatives; please contact us to learn about our rates.
As an organisation, we are supported by a core team of dedicated employees, experienced contractors, interns and volunteers. Sing Lit Station receives financial support from the National Arts Council, the Cultural Matching Fund, the Arts Fund, the Speak Good English Movement and the Buy SingLit campaign for our programmes, but we are sustained also by donations from a community of generous arts patrons.
