So, it’s been a while since I advertised a writing workshop here because they have been filling up before I get around to it. But it looks like there are fewer takers for poetry, so here we go 🙂

As part of the whole Global Poetry Month thing, I’m planning to do an Introduction to Poetic Craft Writing Workshop on the 23rd and 24th of April, 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM. The workshop venue is close to the Green Park metro station on the Yellow line.

We will do 4 workshop sessions of 2 1/2 hours each, looking first at image and metaphor, then at music and meter, then visual elements such as line and stanza breaks and the use of white space, and then bringing these elements together into writing ghazals. You will read and write in each session, in addition to having some more formal craft conversations, but we will not be doing in-depth poem critiques, only first responses to each other’s writing. My goals are for you to walk away with the beginnings of 3-4 poems, a deeper understanding of poetic craft, some new writing buddies, and a renewed love of words!

The total cost, including lunch, tea, coffee etc. on both days, is 5000 per person, although I’m open to need-based fee reductions, so talk to me if you cannot afford this. I have 3-4 open seats, so do get in touch via the contact form below before Friday the 15th, and we’ll figure out details accordingly. 


When: 23rd and 24th April, 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Where: Neeti Bagh, near Green park metro station
How many: 8-10 participants
How much: Rs. 5000 per person, including lunch, tea, and coffee for both days (but talk to me if you cannot afford this — I am open to need based fee reductions)
