About Write for Kindness

Write for Kindness is a national creative-writing competition organised by the Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) and supported by the All In! Young Writers Festival by the Singapore Book Council. It is a platform for secondary, junior college, centralised institute, madrasah and international school students to promote kindness to the younger audience by creating age-appropriate and culturally relevant children’s stories, through short stories, poetry and illustrations.

The objectives of this competition are to promote:

  • the values of kindness through stories and poems which focus on the theme ‘Make a Difference’
  • the importance of stories and poems as a means to positively impact pre-schoolers in their character development
  • story and poetry as creative means of expressing cultural values
  • team work amongst students who work together on the stories, poems and illustrations for pre-schoolers
