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

If Alice was a budding writer, Anita’s Attic would have been her wonderland. Anita Nair’s magic touch transformed my clumsy first draft into a novel well worth publishing. Along the way I came face to face with elusive beings from a parallel universe. A literary agent, a couple of writers, a journalist, an editor and a publisher from the literary sky, lit up our Saturdays at Anita’s Attic. A motley yet talented group of fellow writers supported and spurred me on every inch of the way. Eleven writing Alices found their voices at Anita’s Attic. And I was one of them.
