We all have our reasons to write. What you need alongside is a method to follow. Come and find out more at the Dialogue’s Café.
What do we do in these four hours?
We talk a lot about the books we have read, about the stories and characters that have stayed, about genres of writing and what appeals to us the most
We then write even more. We start with one paragraph on a random topic and move on from there, step by step, to a full-fledged story. In the process we learn how to create characters, write dialogue, develop a plot and a setting to your story.
We continue to write even after these Three hours at the workshop. We meet regularly to share our writing and gather inputs from our fellows.
Trust me, there is no better way to get better at writing.
