A one-of-a-kind writing workshop for those who want to write about thoughts, feelings and experiences with their pets and the birds and animals we interact with or observe.
Participants will work with fiction as well as non-fiction. The writing exercises will cover all writing moods and styles, from the funny and playful to the serious and sentimental.
This is not a workshop about animal therapy or about animal communication. It is purely a writing workshop with the focus on putting in words and communicating to other people, the joys and challenges of having an animal in your life.
Unleash the writer in you with a variety of writing exercises that will cover:
Playing with different genres like poems, haikus, short-stories, novel structures, essays, editorials, the workshop will provide tools to budding as well as seasoned writers to express themselves about the joys, fears, heartbreak and responsibilities of being an animal lover.
A suggested reading-list will be provided for participants to follow up on after the workshop.
