Attention Parents of Secondary & Primary students!

Janus Education is offering programmes to improve composition and communication skills. All you need to do is join our intensive edu-taining camps:

Young Author Scheme (intermediate) YAS Alumni - Veteran author Catherine Khoo and her team of published authors will guide and mentor your child to craft his very own story of 5,000 words. In the intermediate YAS, students learn the fundamentals of supplying details through pacing and using perceptions further. Young authors learn to identify with their audiences through empathy, by developing general critiquing techniques and angling.
Since its successful launch in 2003, the Young Author Scheme (YAS) has mentored hundreds of children. Many of its students have seen their own books published as paperbacks or e-books, which are available in all NLB branches and on the IPAD via Singtel’s skoob platform. The YAS preludes the annual Young Author Award, supported by MDA, NLB, NBDCS and the Singapore Book Publishers Association.


Young Author Scheme (Advanced) Sec 1 to Sec 4 - This programme is NAC endorsed. Young Authors will craft either a fiction or non-fiction story of 10,000 words or more, helping them develop narrative and composition structure well enough for GCE “O” Levels! They explore in-depth characterisation and plot development through research and analysis, story structure as well as tools to grip readers right to the last page of their story. With the opportunity to write more critically and analytically, Young Authors are honed in copyediting stories that they and their peers produce in class. The YAS Advance preludes the annual Young Author Award, supported by MDA, NLB, NBDCS and the Singapore Book Publishers Association.
