Writing Bootcamp

May 6 @ 9:00 am - May 10 @ 5:00 pm

Rs.28000

Writing ​ – like anything else – starts with desire. You have something to say – a story to tell. But too many unknowns can make things seem difficult. What should you write? How should you write it? How will you hook the reader – make sure your writing won’t drag? Will your readers judge you? (Ans : yes). Should you try to impress them? Or ignore them?  What are the publishing options? Once published, how do you market?

Thinking of all these questions together is like trying to eat an entire meal in one gulp. At the Bootcamp, we break the massive meal into small, digestible chunks. Here we break these difficult questions down for the novice/ intermediate level writer.  You get the answers, you write, and the big daunting meal turns into a feast. Or at least something you can tackle.

The Himalayan Writing Bootcamp is our most popular course.  You learn and you write. A lot. ​You learn by doing. You dig into aspects of a good book – plot, character, dialogue, voice (First person or third? Or second person like this paragraph?) and much more. You learn the rather critical art of editing, and realize how much unnecessary, extra and pompous verbosity we habitually stuff into our writing. Okay, now lets edit that: You learn the rather critical art of editing, and realize how much unnecessary, extra and pompous verbosity we habitually stuff into our writing. You learn tools: For editing, for writing better and for disciplining yourself as a writer.
