Need a mentor?

Local writers keen on learning from the masters will be spoilt for choice in the weeks ahead.

The National Arts Council (NAC) will re-launch the Mentor Access Project (MAP) this Saturday at the National Library.

Meanwhile, TheatreWorks Writers Lab is holding two playwriting tilts: The 24-Hour Playwriting Competition and the Singapore Young Dramatist Award (SYDA) 2007.

Writers 18 years and above chosen for the MAP will be given an 18-month mentorship with well-known local and Singapore-based poets, playwrights and fictionists in any of the four official languages.

Among the mentors are Cyril Wong, Surat Markasan, Eleanor Wong, and new additions Aaron Maniam, Yeng Pway Ngon, Anuar Othman, Chairul Fahmy Hussaini and Yeow Kai Chai.
