Five Questions about Writing Saturdays

Q: What are Writing Saturdays? 

A: On the last Saturday of every month, Literature Studio will be organizing an informal get-together of writers. These  Saturdays will henceforth be known as “Writing Saturdays”.

Q: What will be the theme?
A: It will be different every time, but one thing is for sure — it will always be related to writing. We will announce the theme at the beginning of each month, so that you can decide whether you want to participate or not. 

Q: What will be the agenda?
A: We will hold discussions, readings, conduct exercises, share works and problems, and indulge in other “writerly” stuff, such as drinking coffee. All activities will revolve around the theme. The idea is to thrash the theme left, right, and center, and learn as much about it as possible.

Q: What does one have to do to attend and will one have to pay anything? 
A: As the seats will be limited, we will only be able to invite a handful of writers. We want to make sure we don’t miss those who are interested in the theme and will benefit from the session. We will call for applications at the beginning of each month, along with the theme. If you wish to attend a Writing Saturday, you will need to send a brief profile of yourself and the reason why you want to attend this particular Writing Saturday to info@literaturestudio.in. If your profile is selected, you will be informed via email at least 10 days before the event.

Regarding the charges, at least the first few sections will be free of charge. Later, if we feel that we need to invest more, we may charge a small fee from the participants.

Q:  Where and at what time will the Writing Saturday be held? And how long will one session be?

A: We will announce the general area and time along with the theme at the beginning of each month. The exact address and time will be sent to the selected participants along with the invitation. One session will be around 3 hours long.
