The Unboxed Writing Workshop For Young Adults

logo

Want to tell a story that is yet untold? Do you love plots within plots? And want to create an imaginary world that the world will inhabit with you? If so, discover the dormant muse with a little bit of help from us.

**

Unboxed Writers with venue partner The Leanin’ Tree Art Cafe announce a writing workshop on May 7 in Bangalore for young adults or anyone eager to find the writer within.
The five hour, informal workshop will attempt to provide a set of creative tools to writers who are just starting out and looking to polish their craft.  In the workshop, they will explore among other things, the concepts of finding, drafting and polishing a story. And most importantly, how to find inspiration everywhere, to deal with initial blocks and enjoy the process of being a writer.

**

The workshop will include an hour long interaction with guest editor Savita Karthik on the importance of diligent editing and error proofing your work. She will also be evaluating a 150 word writing prompt and will discuss how to pitch your stories to editors.
