Apart from the usual topics that are covered as part of a literary fest in Chennai, The Hindu Lit for Life 2013 workshops focus on the lesser known aspects of writing
Are you a closet poet wondering if your words will make the cut?
Do you wonder what modern art is all about?
Do you think writing a book for kids is an easy job?
The Hindu Lit for Life 2013 in Chennai offers workshops that will throw light on three aspects of writing that are often overlooked: poetry, art appreciation and writing for children.
Each workshop will be only for 30 participants. To register, email your name, age and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org
