Literature Studio was to launch the second chapter of its popular initiative Writer’ Circle in Central Delhi on 6 June 2015. The venue was to be the iconic Oxford Bookstore in Connaught Place. It was hard to imagine that things could get better than this. But they did, and it was because of the awesome people who attended it.
Literature Studio has been running the Writers’ Circle for the past seven months in Noida and the amount of warmth, camaraderie, and support the group has managed to generate among the members is incredible. Noida chapter has people who write in both Hindi and English, from various age groups, and at various stages of their journeys as writers. This brings a variety to the group and gives the members a chance to learn from each other. After running the Noida chapter successfully for the last 7 months, it was time to take this experience to other parts of the city.
The group that attended the first meet of Writers’ Circle – Central DelhiChapter was eight people strong, plus the facilitator, Vibha Malhotra. People from various walks of life had registered and brought with them a depth of experience and a wide variety of writing genres and styles. As a result, the event was full of fun and insights. It is amazing that we had such a brilliant group in our first meet. This is a very encouraging sign.
I am already excited about the Central Delhi Chapter, and have goosebumps imagining the heights we can reach after such a wonderful start.
