What a wonderful day! Two exciting workshops conducted by Cheryl Strayed

We have been going on about the Memoir Writing Workshop by the best-selling author Cheryl Strayed, for which the American Center, New Delhi, had partnered with Literature Studio. Initially we had planned for just one 2.5 hour long workshop. The aim was to invite people who are genuinely interested in Memoirs, and keep the group small and focused. The days leading up to the workshop were fast-paced, with us tracking applications, scanning them, deciding their suitability, and communicating with the applicants. Applications poured in so fast that we were forced to consider another session. We discussed it with the American Center and were soon scheduling a second one. Applications kept on trickling in till the very end, and we also had our share of inevitable last minute cancellations. But on the whole it was a good experience organizing the event. Cheryl is a wonderful speaker and her methods are engaging. She allows people to open up and ask questions and also share their writings. Considering that Memoir Writing requires a lot of courage, and sharing it “isn’t for the faint-hearted”, we found our participants opening up to Cheryl and to the rest of us quite easily. The workshops were productive and we were blessed to have a teacher as wonderful as Cheryl and a brilliant group of participants. Our only regret of the day was that some of our participants, who were driving to the venue, had a harrowing time. Some of them were stuck in traffic for 2.5 hours, because of the closure of many roads for the dress rehearsals of Republic Day Parade. And what made it worse was that at the end of it they had to turn back. Some of them could not attend the session at all, while others decided to hang on and come back for the second session instead. But apart from this, we can safely say that today was a wonderful day! Thanks Cheryl, and thanks to everyone who participated today. We will soon be back with more such workshops, and will keep you in loop.  ...
