Our 8 week workshop will hone your skills as a writer. This is an intensive, fun, horizon-widening ride that will cover narrative styles, editing techniques, appreciating literary genres, and the critical analysis of published work. Did we mention that you will be writing and reading a lot too? A heck of a lot, but we promise it will push you and change you for the better. You will be required to share your own writing and give constructive criticism to other writers in the workshop. Whether you are starting out, or are a little more seasoned, this course will steer you in the right direction.
Being a community intensive course, we don't take more than 10 students in a batch, but need a minimum of three students to make a batch. We have partnered with Wet Ink to provide you access to an online organic community that BWW has created so far, which will continue to inspire your writing long after the course is over.
We also have regular meet-ups with published authors, agents, and publishers for the community. Please visit our Facebook Page to see more: https://www.facebook.com/bangalorewriters
Who is it targeted at?
The course is targeted towards beginners and intermediate writers. From people who have grown up reading to those that started not long ago. From people who write blogs, short stories and non-fiction to people that have a novel inside them that wants out.
There is an application process. This is not meant to intimidate you. The application process allows us to gauge seriousness of intent and creative competency. Please apply!
What is expected from the participants?
An open mind. An interest to learn and a willingness to get out of their comfort zone.
You will need to bond and build a community of writers within the city. You will be expected to have a lot of fun.
