Bound Testimonial

  • “Writers in Mumbai, do attend. This workshop helped me tremendously. There are many writing workshops in the city, but none for editing.”
    Rohini Kapur
  • “It has been a refreshing experience to work with Tara. Her calm and composed demeanour with great listening, grasping and research skills was particularly valuable. Tara continues to be engaged with this project which is in its final stages. I would like to specifically say that it would not have been possible for me to get it to this stage without her commitment and support. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a great project partner and leader.”
    Raju Shete
  • Kindered souls, interesting conversations and wonderful mentors. Bound Writers Retreat was a perfect amalgamation of everything one would expect from a retreat and more. If you are looking to recharge and find inspiration to write that novel you have always been wanting to write, this would be a great place to start.
    Sandeep Narayanan
  • Bound as a retreat is something I want to come back to year-after-year. It is my safe haven to write, and to learn. It is my family, and my tribe that I have searched for for years. It made us all feel that we are all here together.
    Aparna Sanyal
  • I  want to thank you for setting up the space that is Bound. I feel far more confident about my writing, now that it’s been vetted by a group of most excellent writers. 
    Lavanya Lakshminarayan
  • This is the second retreat I am attending by the organisers so far, and it has been fabulous. That is because I have come and grown her as a writer. The line up of authors and mentors have been fantastic.
