Shreeya Sharma (100% scholarship)
Shreya Pothula (50% scholarship)
14-year-old Shreeya Sharma who loves writing short stories and, according to her mother Amrita, has ” an active imagination and an unmistakable knack for writing stories”. Amrita feels that Literature Studio’s short story course will “her overcome her inhibitions and help her find her voice.”
And we have no doubts that she will one day be a great writer. The writing sample she sent shows an imagination that goes beyond the world she is familiar with. The fact that she attempted the daunting genre of historical fiction is an undeniable indication of where she is headed as a writer. Congratulations Shreeya! Our jury has decided to award you a 100 % scholarship for the course.
Another brilliant young writer who impressed our jury is 13-year-old Shreya Pothula, who was able to expertly use humor while narrating the story about a deadly adventure, a task that several experienced writers find difficult. Her mother, Sapna, feels that this scholarship would ” open a new world of expression for her.”
Even though the scholarship was originally intended for one young writer, our jury decided to make an exception in this case and award a 50% scholarship to Shreya as well. Congratulations Shreya, we are sure you will make the most of this opportunity.
The faculty at Literature Studio is looking forward to starting work with the two writers. All the best and congratulations once again to the two winners. Brilliant work indeed!
