Whatâ€™s Your Story? â€“ A creative writing module
What’s Your Story? is a 5 session intensive creating writing workshop where participants engage with elements of fiction as they compose their short stories, explore unique and expressive forms of poetry and nonfiction that will give them a wide range of exposure and fun!
Using art, theatre, outdoor activities and other stimulating approaches, participants will be introduced to new stories and old, from India and beyond. Aimed at nurturing the creative spirit and sharpening the imagination, the workshops are designed especially to create a safe space where participants are constantly engaging with literature and stories using games, cues and other triggers. They are encouraged to experiment fearlessly with ideas, thoughts and words and realize their own writing potential under the guidance of our faculty. Each session will involve several writing exercises, facilitator and peer-to-peer feedback, reflections and discussions! They will be packed with activities that involve working with images, art material, craft, illustrations, film and other such stimuli that become the spring board to their writing as they work with genres such as science fiction, memoir, poetry, among others.
