About the event
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 for 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.
