Come join us at the All In! Young Writers Media Festival and explore the creative and career opportunities for writers in the new media. If you are in a secondary school, Junior College, ITE, Polytechnic or enrolled in any tertiary institution or just a young person who aspires to be a writer or interested in some aspects of writing and publishing this is the Festival to attend.

We have various sessions on social media, e-book publishing and e-book stores, writing, transmedia and much, much more! The programme has been specially organised with you in mind.

This event is suitable for students age 16 and above.
