Bangalore's World-Famous Semi-Deluxe Writing Program Edition III

Bangalore’s World-Famous Semi-Deluxe Writing Program Edition III

To write is to experience the world anew, even as the world moulds you through writing. Writing sharpens your faculties, sensitises you to language, and enables you to find a voice. As a writer you could tell your own story or those of others, create narratives or report on those unfolding around you, find new ways to communicate your ideas, and tune in to other styles of thinking. Writing could also bring you in contact with fellow writers, give you an income, enable you to travel, open out a career. Or it could just enhance your interest in literature.

Bangalore’s World-Famous Semi-Deluxe Writing Program has been designed with all these possibilities in mind. Now in its third edition, this 8-weekend program will make you an aware and innovative writer.

Over eight weekends, you will spend your mornings in a classroom learning skills, understanding craft, and trying your hand at a range of genres, while using your spare time to complete assignments that will be reviewed by the faculty on an individual basis. This hands-on and interactive experience promises to be an engaging way to challenge yourself to do something new. By the end of the workshop you will be writing courageously and skilfully.
