Bangalore Writers Workshop (BWW) is a unique, effective, and interactive method of bringing a group of writers together and allowing them to study the craft of writing while simultaneously receiving constructive feedback on their own work. BWW runs intensive creative writing workshops with small groups in Bangalore. Our groups are fuelled by passion and the creative energy of people with diverse life experiences.
Any writer in English, above the age of 18 is welcome to join the workshops. There is no upper limit.
Our creative writing workshops are targeted at the technologically savvy software professionals, students who want to write a book before they are 25, talented homemakers, retired persons who want to keep themselves busy with a writing project full of their experiences that can aid society.
Our mission is to foster the creative mind, encourage a community, and make writers aware of who they are as creators of text. To this effect, there will be discussions on the creative writing process; meet-ups with published authors and literary experts; introduction to the various genres and writing styles in literature; and constant feedback for the writers.
If you apply and are selected for an 8 week batch, you will start a spectacular journey of learning, unlearning, and re-learning the writing craft; channelizing your own inner editor; and bonding with a group of writers who are serious about creative writing.
Bangalore Writers Workshop (BWW) was founded by Bhumika Anand and Rheea Mukherjee in December 2011.
Rheea Mukherjee was part of BWW till January 2014.
A significant percentage of the fees of each BWWer is employed in supporting FORHD (Foundation for Restoring Human Dignity), which helps the children of prisoners.
