What was your intent in signing up for the BWW? Would you say your intent was met?
I had signed up for BWW to motivate myself to write more, to find my voice as a writer and to get back in touch with literature. I think my intents were met and in addition I was able to become a part a community which will hopefully last for a long time. My Saturday mornings were a lot of fun.
What were your key take-aways from the workshop? Which of the sessions/discussions/topics covered did you find most beneficial to you?
The key take-away for me, from this workshop was to find my area of strength as a writer. However, if I were to venture out of my area of comfort, I know the potholes I need to look out for.
Are there any other topics/methods you would like incorporated in the workshop?
I think it would good to grade the pieces on the quality or publication standard. As now I know what was wrong with the pieces, but I’m not sure where I stand. So I don’t really know exactly how much more work I need to put into my pieces to make it better. And at the end of the workshop, I think it would be great if Rhea and Bhumika could give the participants feedback based on all their pieces i.e areas of strength, areas of weaknesses, so that we have a clear idea exactly what it is we need to work on.
How would you rate your Facilitators? Please give specific feedback to both.
Both of you were fantastic, loads of fun, and all round awesome. Loved you guys. However, I think you should be stronger with the critique. I think you are too frightened of hurting people’s feelings. :)
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 I would definitely recommend it to others. I would rate it an 8.
Any other feedback/suggestions for improvement/criticism…
It was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. And I met some great people.
It would be great if the workshop was longer. Maybe six months or even a year!
