While celebrating the spirit of reading and writing, two literary enthusiasts,

Harsh Agarwal and Nethra Anjanappa are all set to commence Caravan

spotlight story | CaravanCaravan 2013 was a literary event for the bourgeoning writers and literature enthusiasts. Started by writers like Harsh Agarwal, who released his debut novel, ‘Nazaqat’, it was a small, cohesive event held in various cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore etc. I had the fortune to attend the event in Bangalore, thanks to Campus Writing which was one of the sponsors for the event. Bangalore: Elements: The essential of Creative Writing and Creative Thinking, it said on the banner. It was being held in a small café in Koramangala called ‘Atta Galatta’. As I entered the café, the first thing I noticed was the small crowd sitting together discussing something. I sat down with them as the discussion ensued. It was all about how to make your writing better, especially if you want to write a novel and get it published. There were a lot of things that I myself, as a budding novelist didn’t know about. It was a very accommodating event, telling us how to improve our writing. It is essential to know that a lot of research goes into the novel, the first thing to do is to define the genre you’re going to write, a summary or gist of the book should do you a lot of good, also, a character study (looks, hobbies, nature) is important. The most important thing is to go with the flow, not worry about the deadline unless you’re given one by the publisher. The key ingredient here is patience as we all know that a lot of time goes into writing the book and sending it to different publishers, the best would be to be ready for rejections, and even better would be to not get discouraged at these rejections, great writers are born from rejections.

“Fablery Publications” presents “Caravan” – one of a kind tour to 10 major cities (like Lucknow, Delhi, Kota, Bhopal, Bangalore, Mysore, Pune, Mumbai, Kolkata & Guwahati) of India for workshops, interactive sessions, discussions and lot more fun for all book lovers! It’s not just a tour; it’s a festival in motion!” That is what it says on the Facebook Event page. It was definitely an interactive event, but could have been better had there been more activities or exercises for the people. Personally, the closed nature of this event was better as it gives more room for interaction, and discussion. Over all, I liked the event and I wish more of such tours would happen.

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…

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…
