About being a part of Anita’s Attic Creative Writing program

Anita’s Attic is one of the best things to have happened. On the very first day she asked us to identify the project that we’d be working on. Week after week we progressed on our piece of work with her helpful advice, insightful feedback on the craft of writing and one-on-one reviews. What may have seemed impossible became possible with the discipline that she had instilled in us. Amidst up-and-downs of life we all managed to produce our weekly assignments before the deadline. Anita’s guidance, personal touch, humorous anecdotes made the twelve weeks totally worthwhile. The guest ranging from Authors, Publishers, editors and literary agents gave us a 360 degree view of the writing world.

Our batch, everyone would say, was a quiet batch, but it was an equally inspiring batch of strong women and gentlemen. I wish everyone success in their writing journey and a very wonderful life.
