How to Excel in Summary Writing

“… summary-writing is essentially an act of deconstructing, disassembling—a skill that shouldn’t be lost on us if we consider how, at every point in our lives, at school, and later at work, we have to apply the fine art of synopsis.”

                  By Vivienne Yeo

HOW do we gun down all the points for our summary exercise? What’s the trick behind “using our words as far as possible”? Is there a more efficient way of keeping tab of our wordcount?

About the Workshop
In this workshop, we will address these questions by imagining ourselves in the mind of a writer, immersing our minds in his writing process. We will practice the gentle art of deconstructing and the skill of paraphrasing, studying from never-before-seen essays and articles (read: not the Ten-Year Series)—framed in the testing style of the ‘O’ Levels exam (80-word quota) and ‘A’ Levels exam (120-word quota).
