Here’s what our summer scholar Shreeya Sharma has to say about us:

Shreeya Sharma, Literature Studio Summer Scholarship, Literature Studio Summer Scholar, Creative Writing Courses, Creative Writing Workshop, Creative Writing Courses in India, Creative Writing Courses in Delhi and NCR, Creative Writing Workshop in Delhi and NCRDuring my summer vacations, I got the opportunity to be a part of Literature Studio’s Short Story Writing Course. This had been a wonderful experience for me as it opened a whole new world of excitement and understanding of writing to me. Vibha ma’am is a wonderful teacher and has a beautiful charm about her.  She used a lot of innovative and grasping examples to explain the different concepts. She gave assignments which enhanced my imaginative capabilities.

During the course that lasted 10 classes, I, thanks to her constant encouragements and advice, wrote a short story – Presumed Guilty.  The actual process of writing this story was really engrossing and Vibha ma’am constantly motivated and guided me in taking the story further whenever I got stuck. The course content was excellent, but the best part was the guiding and grooming that she did. This course has effectively enhanced my confidence as a writer.

Thanks to Sangeeta aunty, I was able to learn so much from this wonderful teacher. This has been a very memorable experience for me.

And here is what her mother, Amrita Sharma, shares about the course:

Thank you all for the heartwarming appreciation, feedback and encouragement for Shreeya’s story. Shreeya Sharma had written this story as part of a creative writing course by Literature Studio which she had done during her summer vacations.
This end result of the course is out there for all to see. But the actual process of writing this story was made totally engrossing and motivating by the teacher, Vibha Malhotra. The course content was very good but the best part was the guidance and grooming done by Vibha. She has not only improved Shreeya’s story writing skills but managed to effectively enhance her confidence as a writer. Thanks Sangeeta Khanna, for bringing us together It has been such a memorable experience that I would wholeheartedly recommend Literature Studio as a one-stop-shop for all your creative writing needs.

The story that Amrita is talking about here has been published here.

Shreya always looked forward to the sessions.Yes, it certainly has added strength to her writing skills.There is finesse in her writings now.

I have seen that it has helped her in her academics as well. The way she expresses her point has become crisp and loud. She is able to convey her ideas in a few words because of the fantastic training you’ve imparted to her. This was a great learning experience for her.

You actually motivated her to start her own blog. Thank you for your patience and support.

  1. HI
    I wanted to understand if you conduct the creative writing course for all kids or only with the scholarship winner?
    If so, can you please let me know the locations where these courses are conducted and the details of the course?
    Thanks and hope to hear from you all soon
    warm regards
    Atanu

    • Hi Atanu,

      Thanks for your interest. We conduct Creative Writing Courses for all kids. The only criteria is that the child should have a good understanding of sentence structures and grammar in either Hindi or English, to be able to grasp the concepts of creative writing. We have found that usually children above 10 years of age have the desired command on language, but this is not a hard age limit.

      Our courses are not limited to any specific location. As such, Literature Studio is based in Noida and Delhi, and children from these cities have the option of face-to-face coaching, but for other cities, we conduct courses online, on Skype or Google Hangout.

      Let me know if so far you find this feasible and interesting and I will then set up a tele-meeting with you and talk to you about the courses based on the requirements.

      Thanks,
      Vibha

  2. I hope to interest my twelve year old grandaughter Molly Penney. She has a reading age of seventeen and has expressed the intention of being a writer. She does not read a lot and her spelling is terrible. However she is a dreamy and creative person with lots of Penney stubborness.
    I also have friends in Andhra Pradesh and in Lahore, Pakistan. These all are pastors of churches and run adult education or schools for poor children. Maybe they have a talented youngster who might benefit from one of your courses.
    I would like to commend yor Summer school to these dear good people.
    Yours with kind regards
    Roger Penney

    • Thanks Roger. Please do let as many young people as possible know about this scholarship.

  3. Hi Vibha,

    Am very keen on the creative writing courses for my daughter (13 years) who is an avid reader and has a keen interest in writing.

    Would it be possible to connect to understand the courses in more detail?

    Regards, Sreyoshi
