Are you a writer looking for ideas? A student who wants to know more about creative writing? A Language teacher who wants to share a writing resource with students? A parent who wants to inspire their children? Know someone who would find a writing reference useful?
I started the Writing with Sandhya channel in August last year and had a tremendous 1st season. The channel crossed 1000 subscribers in January and I interviewed 24 authors in various genres. Along the way, I celebrated a few personal accomplishments – Bookversary and trailer of Burma to Bangalore, launch of Garden of Neuro’s Blogging course, and a delightful birthday message from many of the authors I had interviewed, coordinated and compiled by my dear dot, Tarana aka Tiara Productions. A huge shout out to her as she records and edits all the videos and creates all the posters.
As a small token of gratitude to my writing fraternity, particularly my fellow authors at The Book Bakers, I share this video compilation of all my creative writing overview episodes on the Writing with Sandhya channel: Creative Writing 101
