Our lives are full of stories but how many people know how to tell a story or even write one? Storytelling is an art whether it be oral or in a written format. The workshop takes the participants through the history and genesis of storytelling as well as discovering different kinds of stories. The basics of story writing in terms of content and structure are understood through written exercises in class. Cinema is about ‘show, don’t tell’ and participants are challenged to create stories keeping that in mind.
The workshop comprises of 4 sessions conducted over two Saturdays each where participants will be doing hands-on writing exercises in class which will allow them to develop an understanding of what makes a story work. Assignments will be discussed and feedback given so that participants will learn to express themselves in their writing.
- Writing exercises in class

At the end of the workshop, participants grounded in the basics, would have done enough thinking and writing to feel confident to develop stories on their own.
