Book Cover Design: The Birth of Ideas

Sessions will be held on Friday and Saturday, from 9:30am-12:30pm and 9:30am-5:30pm respectively.

Reverse the conventional process of designing your book cover: instead of creating a cover for a story, you will create a story from a cover. This workshop is targeted at professional creatives who want to explore the boundaries between written and visual storytelling.


Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis and workshop fees must be paid before the workshop. If the minimum number of participants is not met for the class, the organisers will inform all participants about possible postponement and cancellation, two weeks before the workshop date.

Cancellation & Substitution

The workshop can be cancelled or postponed two weeks before the workshop date if the minimum number of participants is not met. Participants will be fully refunded for workshops cancelled by us.

Participants who are unable to attend a workshop they have registered for are to inform us of the reason two weeks before the workshop date. They will be fully refunded in the event of extenuating and mitigating circumstances (E.g. illness, bereavement, accidents) . Those who inform us up to five (5) working days before the workshop date will receive a 50% refund. Participants can also attend another course at the same value within the same year.
