Exploring the ecosystem of the children's literary scene in Singapore
The children’s literary scene in Singapore has been growing over the years with an increasing number of locally written picture books gaining a substantial amount of readership locally, as well as being recognised abroad. However, there is a dearth of holistic study conducted on the children’s literary scene. To gain an insight into the children’s literary landscape in Singapore – particularly picture books – qualitative interviews were conducted to better understand the roles stakeholders play. Using the systems framework, this paper analysed the ecosystem and the interconnectedness between the different stakeholders, and identified that funding is a key challenge. Hence, there is a need for stakeholders to provide diversification to grow readership and build a sustainable business model.
