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.
Rheea Mukherjee:
Bhumika Anand: 
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!
