The Short Story Writing Workshop

The Short Story Writing workshop in collaboration with Half Baked Bean was a huge success with the participants. The two day intensive course included various sessions from Finding your voice as a writer to Discovering new genres and dabbling with the Anatomy of Writing. In the end, participants were asked to workshop their stories, where they received critical feedback on language, structure, dialogue, vocabulary and over all crux of the story. A special Q n A session with bestselling author Faraaz Kazi took the icing on the cake as he graciously answered questions and talked about new and young writing in India.

November Initiative

Our  Creative Writing Workshop at Gargi College witnessed some outstanding writing by the students. For the Fantasy Writing session, the students came up with  fantastical tales involving Vampires, Lycans, Time portals, Sci Fic gadgets and crazy parallel universe’s. Inspired by books and movies like X-Men, Wolverine, Harry Potter and the Vampire Diaries, the stories were well worth the imagination and effort. As the workshop came to an end, the students came up with yet another brilliant story which showcased what they had been taught in classes such as The Anatomy of Writing and The Fantasy Locket. Looking forward to more  such brilliance from the Literature students at Gargi.
