Writers Workshop With R Jagannathan




No. 69, BMTC Layout, Adjacent to Kammasandra Village, Lakshmipura
Hobli, Karnataka India



Thanks to technology, it is now easier to become a good writer. AI and ChatGPT are now seemingly writing better than you and me. However, effective writing is not just about technical proficiency; it’s about authenticity and connecting with your audience.

My workshop will primarily focus on developing your writing skills in various forms, including news reporting, opinion pieces, and micro text for social media. We will also explore ways to eliminate bias and develop your own unique writing style. While technology can make you a better writer or even write better than you, it can never replace the authenticity and individuality of human writing.

Join me at INDICA Rithambhara, Bengaluru from March 17th-19th.

The retreat is limited to 15 participants. The cost of accommodation will be Rs 5000 for both the days.

Existing members of 1000 Reviewers Club ( 2021 & 2022) who have written 3 or more reviews need not pay the above cost and will be hosted free of charge.
