What was your intent in signing up for the BWW? Would you say your intent was met?
To know fellow writers in my own city and to get some professional training on writing short stories and it was. 

What were your key take-aways from the workshop? Which of the sessions/discussions/topics covered did you find most beneficial to you?
All those sessions that dealt with mythology and religion, of course, helped me. I learnt how to critique a piece and my own piece, now a days after completing a piece, I assume reader's perspective and critique my piece, which I have never done before.

Also I have started reading a LOT.

Are there any other topics/methods you would like incorporated in the workshop?
Yes. Translations. There can be an assignment, where everyone can be asked to write a piece in any other language except English and then translate it to English. Now that I’m translating a piece for the BWW blog, I find it really hard to translate.

How would you rate your Facilitators? Please give specific feedback to both.
Both of you are awesome facilitators. Please…

Would you recommend the workshop to others? How would you rate the BWW, on a scale of 1-10, where 10 is the highest?
Yes, already doing it. 9
