    Its a great introductory workshop on creative writing and the creative process that goes behind creative and imaginative work. I thought it really made me think about the emotions and the visuals that my characters engender. I have always written in the flow without much of an outline or plan. This workshop really made me think about how to organize those thoughts. Gauri ma’am is very patient and encouraging of us novice writers. I wish living bridge starts an online group for young writers. Lovely workshop. Its impressive how effectively 4 days are used.

    A journey of self discovery

    I have always been an overthinker. But I always struggled to express my thoughts in words. This workshop as if opened that door inside my head and heart, pushing me to pen down my thoughts. I never knew that I could write creative things beyond all the scientific write ups. Our mentor, Gauri Dange Jii, has been very supportive helping us fledge out our inner thoughts by sharing tools, techniques, and experiences from her self journey. The amazing community that was created during the workshop continue to support each other. My experience has been over the top as a result of all three – Living Bridge’s warm cozy ambience – even virtually, our mentor’s efforts, our dedicated learners’ helping each other to grow – coming together packed up in one workshop. It has been a life changing experience to me and I can’t wait to explore my own self travelling through the different roads of Living Bridge.
