When her family relocated to Singapore from the UK, author Alice Clark-Platts was able to focus more on her writing but found she was missing a sense of community. She put out some feelers to see if there were others in need of writing support and encouragement and discovered that Singapore had a large group of Singaporeans and expats aspiring to get published. In response, Clark-Platts founded the Singapore Writers' Group in 2012 which has grown to include over 1,500 writer members. The organization offers opportunities to get feedback, workshops, author speaking engagements, and more. Additional incentives are available to a select group of members. She strongly encourages writers to seek out and join similar groups or find support in their own communities to help build confidence in their writing abilities.
I started a Paeroa Writers' Group on Facebook - - and have attracted several writers who have launched their books with Lulu.com
It was quite a pleasure to interview Alice. Her vision and passion for writers in Singapore is quite inspiring.
