Write Club, Hyderabad is the one-stop meetup group in the laid-back city of Hyderabad that will awaken your story from its slumber.
We help you pen your thoughts, spill your mind and finally make an appointment with the writer in your head. We conduct free, weekly events that foster writing. Our Meetups aim at helping writers reach their goals in a supportive, collaborative, social setting.
Writing doesn't have to be all by oneself. We welcome anyone who writes, regardless of genre, language or age. We have members writing novels, short stories, poetry, screenplays, essays, school reports and more.
Writing an hour per week makes us feel empowered, rejuvenated and rewarded. Also, it can add to your habitual discipline of writing.
When does it happen: Every Saturday
What we do, basically: One of the members of Write Club (anyone with a participation count over 2 consecutive meetups) hosts a session. They bring with them a theme, a writing plan and exercises. We all then write to the host's prompts and guidelines for about an hour. We read out our write-ups, based on the writer's discretion and obtain feedback and critique on them.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes earlier to the proposed meetup time. The event host will lead the session, as part of which we will write for an hour. Following that, there will be a session of reading and constructive critique (optional as per member discretion). Members often learn about each other's writing styles, verbosity, creative understanding and tips to better. Members are encouraged to share experiences & ideas. After the session, we network and socialise.
Any pre-requisites: Entry is open and welcome. Bring your writing devices and we're all set! We promise to provide you with good coffee and a super-creative conversation.
Each participant is free to attend 3 meetups of Write Club. This gives the participant a clear know-how on the meetup and initiative.
Further to the 3rd meetup, the participant should be a member to attend further meetups.
'Of Blood and Ink' is a compilation of ten exciting, and diverse short stories of people and places bound together by the spills of destiny. The anthology speaks of the mind-numbing pathos of fictional characters who have drowned deep in the valleys of blood and ink.
A magician, a writer and a lover engulfed in the pathos of destiny. A working woman trapped in the dilemma of a choice. A programmer discovering elements unknown. An escape from the chords of a bully. A book and its journey closeted in the pages of many lives. A woman who discovers the goodness of the world. A pick-pocket who gets stuck in the spiral of a vicious trap. A little girl, discovering her life, all at one go. A regular political contender with a twisted plan. A dog, a couple and a vacation that changes everything!
Each story in the book speaks of the journey of a life (or lives) in the most distinctly amazing ways possible. Each story is a short novel in itself. Each story is distinct, spell-binding and page-turning in its own sweet way. And each story is connected to another by the integral obsessive elements - Blood and Ink.
