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

What goes behind a book making?
How do literary writers plan?
How do commercial writers think?
Is it just me or other writers also who go through similar phases of self-doubt?
This mentorship program was an answer to all those questions and many more.
The weekly guidance by Anita Ma’am : word by word, sentence by sentence assistance was an enriching experience.
And there was nothing like that only one style of writing was encouraged. The nine of us wrote different and all were welcomed, encouraged and celebrated.
At the end of the day, you get a clear picture of what you are doing and where your writing is heading.
The real catch is even after the course is completed, Anita Ma’am stays in touch with her mentees. So in a way it’s not just a twelve week training program but a lifelong commitment. Commendable!
