A significant part of our work in literary arts concentrates on Writing the City, an online platform for the exchange and showcase of UK and Singapore writers where the writing community can share work, receive feedback and access opportunities to take their writing forward.

We also hold many offline activities in the literary arts. For example, Dickens 2012, which was a series of dynamic literary events to celebrate one of the world’s most inspiring authors, Charles Dickens.

An important part of our work is also our participation in the Singapore Writers Festival, where we work with prominent British writers and engage with local audiences and students.

Our work with the Singapore Writers Festival contributed to the British Council being a recipient of the 2013 Arts Supporter Award for our contribution to advancing the arts in Singapore in 2012.
