The Mentor Access Project (MAP) is a unique 12-month mentorship programme that aims to develop fresh Singapore literary talent in the four official languages – English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. It is presented by the National Arts Council (NAC) and organised by The Writers Centre Singapore.
Successful applicants will undergo an intensive mentorship programme with an established Singapore writer and participate in an exciting series of literary activities, many of which are exclusively arranged for MAP participants only. These include dialogue sessions, talks, workshops and other events at the Singapore Writers Festival 2016. A highlight of MAP is a two-day stay-in writers’ residency, which will provide a creative and communal space for participants to learn, network and share and discuss their writing.
