Creative Writing: Creating Memorable Characters

19 December 2017, Mukha Cafe (TTDI)

This was very exciting!! Due to the overwhelming response, I had to conduct another workshop for those who missed it the first time. The outcome was amazing!! In this session, participants were inspired by the props in the café and they created believable characters such as a mirror, fish, table and other things.

Creative Writing: Get Them Hooked

14 December 2017, Mukha Cafe (TTDI)

This event was a highly interactive session. I loved seeing the participants huddled together analyzing, discussing and writing various prompts , as they created their own beginnings for fiction. The session was so good that many asked when the next session was. Gosh I don’t know. Next year InshaAllah. Thanks for the support!

Creative Writing: Creating Memorable Characters

5 December 2017, Mukha Cafe (TTDI)

This was my first ever workshop and I was nervous! But all that quickly disappeared as the children’s eagerness and participation made me jump right in. This workshop was about creating characters for fiction writing. We divided the group into various segments and children were seen discussing and writing down important traits of characters. We had games, discussions and a bunch of other activities. The outcome of this workshop was amazing. Children created interesting write-ups about characters inspired by sugar jars, jugs, a fork and so on.

Oh by the way, the gracious owners of the cafe provided lunch too. Do give them a call if you’re keen on organizing an event any time soon.
