Many writers are happy when their stories are published. However, there are other things the writers may consider so that their stories do not stop as just being a book. Writers should think of how their stories can enhance the audience’s creativity and be converted into new media and other platforms such as performances, animations, dramatisations, films, puppetry, etc.

This workshop will discuss the important elemenets in the stories that should be considered when writing amd rewriting folktales to allow the stories to be extended into new creations. Participants are requested to bring a story that will be shared and discussed in the workshop. For those who have just started writing, they will be guided to produce their first story in the workshop.
