- This event has passed.
This 5-day Short Story Writing workshop (26-30 July), conducted as part of CWC’s Summer School 2021, aimed towards working on style, structure, voice, and other formal components of short story writing. Throughout the sessions, participants were familiarized with short stories as well as non-fiction from a diverse range of authors and cultural backgrounds. Through interactive group activities, writing prompts, and intensive peer-review critique sessions the participants’ creative output were tested and exposed to other readers, in an aim to foster the ability to read critically. The workshop offered exclusive one-on-one sessions for candidates with Apoorva Saini and Uday Kanungo, both writing tutors at CWC, with the intention of building a community of writers who can exchange and review their work in the future. On the last day, an interactive session was conducted with participants, where the invited guest speaker was the fiction writer, Tanuj Solanki.
