The story about 12 year old Victoria Siaw Wei Yah writing 8 children stories which were published at the beginning of this year hit the news two days ago. Her story is certainly an inspiration for budding young writers who want their voices and muses to be heard and read.
I also applaud the effort taken by the publisher, Future Text Publications Sdn Bhd, for giving Victoria a good start at such a young age. (I’m curious about who is the illustrator of all her stories.) More publishers should scout around the country to publish children stories written by children themselves, as I believe there are more Victorias waiting to be discovered just around the corner. How about having a X-Factor/American Idol alike programme for this talented people?
