The top 73 finalists got to participate in SOTA's Short Fiction Junior Academy workshop held on 30 March 2019, conducted by our Literary Arts teachers and Ms. Adeline Foo, author of The Diary of Amos Lee. They played Word Games, read stories about The Mars Room, Magical Parakeets and Crystal Balls written by Literary Arts teachers. They later also wrote a phantasmagorical story on the spot.

Once again, we would like to thank our sponsor Singapore Press Holdings Foundation for supporting us in reaching out to children who possess the passion and talent for writing.
