Writing is not just the art and craft of putting words on paper so that one may score high marks or impress an audience. It is also a means for exploring the unknown territories of one’s mind where many a world lie. From Spiderman to Chota Bheem, from Mahabharata to Harry Potter, entire universes are imagined and put down on paper so that others too can share them with us.

The participating students will also get an opportunity to submit their creative pieces for assessment by the instructor and getting personal feedback.
