Saturday 26th May 14:00 - 16:00
Writing can be a lonely task. Sometimes you need a tribe to help you set goals and deadlines, to share your successes and mistakes -- to stay motivated. These sessions will give you a quiet and supportive environment to write in the company of others. Novelists, poets, bloggers and scriptwriters are all welcome.
Join Desi Writers’ Lounge at the British Council library in Karachi as we resume our bi-monthly Write-in Sessions.
The write-in sessions are for new and experienced writers and aim to develop a strong writing community offline. Writers must bring their own laptop or notebook, whichever medium they are comfortable with, and write with fellow writers. There is no requirement of sharing work with others but you are welcome to discuss your writing if you feel you need help or direction. This is an opportunity to share knowledge and passion for stories and writing, and to find inspiration with fellow writers.
About Desi Writers’ Lounge:
Desi Writers' Lounge (DWL) is an online collective for South Asian writers and a plat-form for writing on South Asia that is powered entirely by volunteers. With ten years of dedicated effort and groundbreaking initiatives under its belt, today DWL runs online forums for peer review, a literary magazine called Papercuts, an international short story competition, a poetry competition, a global network of book clubs, and an education and training programme for writers and readers.
The DWL write-in sessions started with officially hosting NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in 2015 and 2016. Physical write-ins are a big part of NaNoWriMo, a global challenge in which participants have to write 50k words in 30 days.
