AFCC Writers and Illustrators Retreat


Glorious Sunrise at Angsana Bintan, venue of the Retreat

It was such an honour to have been selected to attend this year’s Asian Festival of Children’s Content‘s Writer and Illustrator Retreat over the past 4 days. The time spent with the 3 amazing mentors and the other wonderful writers and illustrators was certainly most enriching.

Holly Thompson,  Sayoni Basu and Amy Ng shared from their rich experience and also conducted workshops as well as one-to-one and small group mentoring sessions. They were approachable, knowledgeable and offered candid and honest comments and suggestions.

The participants came from a range of nationalities as well as such diverse backgrounds and experience. Over the many opportunities to interact and work together, we were not only able to move our own work forward, we have made good friends.

I visually recorded my experience, thoughts and reflections as best as I could and I enjoyed the process as well.

I am looking forward to attending the rest of the Festival and also towards where my journey as an illustrator-writer will take me.
