This is your creative journey.
You may be an aspiring writer, speaker, actor or artist. My aim is not to ‘teach’ but to help you recognize your original voice and how to share it with the world.
Here’s a little about who I am and what I know that can help you
Areas of Interest
I write, think, watch movies, make music and recordings. I like to cross genres into fiction, plays and song lyrics.
Australian-born, Chris lives in Singapore where he has been teaching creative writing to students of all ages since 2004.
Chris has a Phd in Creative Writing from Monash University in Australia. His verse novel was commended in the 2015 Victorian Premier’s Awards, (unpublished fiction ms category) one of the top literary honours in Australia. He has published several collections of poetry, fiction in several anthologies and scholarly essays internationally for 40 years. Dr Mooney-Singh writes for adults as well as children of all ages. His short plays for adults and children have been produced regularly since 2006 and recently he wrote and directed his first short blended reality film
He and his team of mentors have taught in over 100 schools, colleges and mentored M.A. level students in the Lasalle College of the Arts Creative Writing programme. In addition he has been the creative director of Lit Up Asia (a cross arts lit festival) for nearly a decade as well as publishing many top authors and poets through his indie publishing imprint Red Wheelbarrow Books. In Singapore he has also mentored 3 top writer winners of the National Young Artist of the Year Award.
As well as being a full-time writer and mentor since 2003 Chris was initially trained as a journalist and radio writer and presenter. He has created many spoken word ensembles, coaching them in writing and delivering winner performances. For that reason he brought Poetry Slam in Singapore and Malaysia. Over the years hundreds if not thousands have deepened their love for writing and the arts. This has added a new flavour to the literary eco system in South-East Asia.
These days, he has expanded his own skill set to include online video courses on a range of subjects, is developing a new YouTube channel for writers and thinkers as well as a podcast of audio scape fiction and poetry.
