WGR2022 - Books for Primary School Readers

Commissioned by the National Arts Council, Words Go Round (WGR) is a school outreach programme that began in 2011 as part of the Singapore Writers Festival (SWF), with the objective of bringing literary authors and programmes directly to students in our schools.

Now entering its 12th edition, WGR 2022 has expanded into a standalone, multilingual slate of programmes in English, Chinese, Malay, and Tamil, taking place from 23 May to 29 July 2022. Schools can look forward to an exciting slate of programmes, with something on offer for students of all ages, from pre-school to JC/CI. 

For pre-school and primary school programmes, visit the Singapore Book Council. For secondary school/JC/CI programmes, visit SingLit Station.
