About being a part of Anita’s Attic Creative Writing program
When I walked into Anita’s Attic, I had a folder full of incomplete stories and very little hope that any of them would find an ending. I was lost and drowning in a swamp of my own endless ideas, doubting my ability to write. Anita’s mentorship programme guided me out of that mess, one step at a time.
Anita’s Attic was everything an aspiring writer could hope for. Anita is an amazing mentor; she listened, identified my struggles, and motivated me to get over it. I got to spend every Saturday with a group of brilliant writers who shared my dream, and there were guest speakers inspiring us every week. I felt reassured here, that it is alright to be stuck and struggling with a story, and that doesn’t mean I cannot write. Every session has reinforced my conviction to continue creating stories, and has given me the confidence that I couldn’t have imagined eleven weeks ago.
