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 thehindulfl@gmail.com
