To write is to experience the world anew, even as the world moulds you through writing. Writing sharpens your faculties, sensitises you to language, and enables you to find a voice. As a writer you could tell your own story or those of others, create narratives or report on those unfolding around you, find new ways to communicate your ideas, and tune in to other styles of thinking. Writing could also bring you in contact with fellow writers, give you an income, enable you to travel, open out a career. Or it could just enhance your interest in literature.
Bangalore’s World-Famous Semi-Deluxe Writing Program has been designed with all these possibilities in mind. After having successfully completed the first edition in 2017, applications are now open for the second edition starting February 10, 2018.
A 9-weekend creative writing program conceptualised by Anjum Hasan, Eshwar Sundaresan and Zac O’Yeah, it includes lectures, workshops, assignments and in-depth discussions by leading writers from the city.
