If you are involved in writing or in any other field that requires a constant practice, after some point of time you might have faced a pause in the flow of your creative juices. Some people call this writer's block. More or less this stagnation point in creativity arises because of getting too perfect in your skills. If you have been doing the same kind of writing for a really long time, it won't be hard for you to do the same kind of writing tomorrow morning. But, just in case, if you have to write something that is out of your league or forte or style or area of expertise, you simply end up staring at your laptop screen or notebook.
If you are a writer who has had their fair share of experience in writing and are presently finding ways to amp up your writing skills, this workshop is designed especially for you. Depending on your particular requirements and also your present level of expertise, you can gain value from this workshop while being a beginner too. If you're a poet or a research-based scholarly writer, you won't learn much here. For those two fields, Rupi Kaur and your college professor will provide better learning.
The workshop will be facilitated by Arpit Chhikara. He is a freelance writer from Delhi who has travelled to various places in India by earning money using his writing skills. His work has been published at Arre, Love Matters India and Agents of Ishq.
The workshop will be from 3-7 PM in the form of various writing exercises and in between, there will be a break for 30 minutes. It is requested that you stay from beginning till the end to maximise your gains. The suggested contribution is INR 300 which is to be paid at the time of registration and is non-refundable. Post the workshop, in the coming two months you'll get:-
- a bi-monthly guided exercises pdf to practice and keep track of your creative journey - a bi-monthly one-to-one call opportunity with the facilitator to sort out your specific work-related queries
Other than the above benefits, you'll also receive links to books, articles, podcasts and authors to follow for maintaining consistency in improving your skills. The learning during the workshop and in the successive two months is designed to last until the next year's monsoon arrives. During this learning journey, you'll find yourself:-
- writing in your own voice - more spontaneous in thinking - getting rid of the inner procrastinator
We are expecting you to come with your pens, notebooks (or laptop if you're more comfortable with it) and an open mind.
