MEET LEROY LAM
Please introduce yourself!
My name is Leroy Lam, I'm the Principal Trainer and Curriculum developer at MUTB. I also write short stories and I've published an anthology called Saga.
What's your holiday writing workshop about?
This coming workshop is part of our INK (Imagination n Knowledge) series, a signature workshop at MUTB. It's called INKcredible Creatures and How to Catch Them! It's a 1-day creative writing workshop that teaches your child to craft a fascinating story about incredible creatures and how to tame them.
What's an INK workshop?
INK is an MUTB specialty, and it's where we immerse kids in an environment that hopefully inspires them to write, no holds barred. We have done some incredible workshop themes, from HauntINK (supernatural stuff), to detective stories in InvestigateINK, to our very, very big one last year about scifi stories, INK to the Void, which was inspired by Star Wars.
Why is storytelling important for children?
My son (and sometimes my eldest daughter) would refuse to sleep without me telling a story at bedtime. Storytelling brings a world of imagination to children, takes them to fantastic lands and lets them experience harrowing adventures they may never experience in real life. It is important because it teaches them. Values, morals, how to fight off pirates ... everything. It inspires them to become someone larger than life, bigger than the world they live in.
