Anita’s Attic is a writing course conducted and curated by well-known author Anita Nair. In her classes, you will be exploring different literary formats and genres, get to honing your writing skills under the mentorship of Nair herself.

The Writer's Block

A 12-week programme, Anita’s Attic takes in 12 eager and aspiring writers handpicked by Anita Nair and takes them through different kinds of literary writing and formats, helping them identify their strengths and hone their skills. The course happens every Saturday, with guest writers taking a session once in a while, ending the class with every student getting a one-on-one session with Nair herself.

Although the course familiarises you with everything from poetry writing and novels to essays, short stories and even travelogue writing, the aim is to find your forte and voice on paper, which at the end of 12 weeks you should be able to. Open to people over the age of 18, students are picked on the basis of the work they need to submit prior to admission and their online presence if any. For a steep INR 70, 000 fee, you’ll be guaranteed individual attention from Nair herself, the who’s who of the literary circles coming in and interacting with the students and a solid platform to launch your writing career on.

Pen To Paper
