What is CoMeL?
The best way to describe CoMeL is TED talks to inspire the best children’s content.
Is CoMeL for children?
CoMeL is targeted for all producers of children’s content- including books, illustrations, films, animation, music. Generally producers and publishers tend to be adults but children are also now capable of now producing their own content 🙂
Although we at CoMeL believe that, strictly there is no “children’s content”, only good content. We used to all watch P Ramlee, listen to Elvis and Sinatra growing up and read LAT- and guess what? We still doing all the above today 🙂
So truly there is just “good content” and the best of stories endure.
Children should be just given the best stories in whatever medium as early as possible so that we start nurturing best minds and hearts to produce the best content.
How did CoMeL begin?
Malaysian based editor Daphne Lee planted the seeds of a literary event which she described in her own words as “small but perfect”. CoMeL has expanded the stage to showcase beyond books and have featured visual artists, cartoonists, film directors,musicians, comedians, educationists and a baker!
