spotlight story | Caravan

I just began as an ambassador for Campus writing, I had the chance to witness one of the best literary drives/events I have seen till date. Am talking of learning the skills of creative writing and the dexterous art of poetry.

‘Caravan’ was the name of the event I just attended and let me tell you it was one of the best ones in the domain I have ever seen. Campus Writing was a partner in the multi-city literary drive and that gave me a free ride to attend this awesome event and meet the awesome people who have taken to writing from diverse fields in Life. The highlight of the event were the young aspiring novelists and poets and their stories about starting-up in this field. I attended the Delhi event and I tell you it was a huge success. The event team is on its way to 8 more cities to give more people a piece about creative writing and build a dialogue about writing among the youth today…

‘Caravan’ is coming to Bangalore, Guwahati and a lot of places next. If you ever though you wanted to be a writer someday or have a thing for writing and literature, try attending the event. It is worth every single minute spent at the event…

About the Panellists:

I urge all the creative writers to be in touch with Campus writing so that you can attend wonderful events like this. 

And finally closing in from the CampusWriting’s point of view… Someone from the team at CampusWriting would surely be at couple of the other destinations that Caravan takes us… And we will post you the stories of the event and the speakers in those places. Best of luck to the ‘Caravan’ team; a great job guys. Keep it up…
