Creative Currents

find your creativity with my unique creative writing workshop

welcome to your bespoke writing workshop

We aim to uncover your creativity, a little more, then a little more and then even a little more, until you begin to spot signs of your own true creative self on the blank page.

This workshop is not your typical form, structure, genre-based fare. Though that may come up. Instead, I invite you to take a step into this rabbit hole of tapping into your creative energy and bringing it alive through writing for now, but in other ways as you get on with your life. I will not be a teacher but just a guide to your process.

 

Through a series of writing exercises, we will begin to tap into and uncover what you inherently want to express. There are three sides to the workshop, mutually exclusive: the craft, the art and the language of it. Don’t expect them to come together at the beginning but just trust the process.

Course structure:

  • A writing prompt every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

  • Saturday 15-minute zoom audio classes where I give you an insight into the writing, reading and exercises of the coming week and we can also talk inspiration and road blocks.

  1. We will be reading certain books throughout the week. Have a small budget for this.

  2. Have a google drive for daily writing submissions for feedback.

  3. You can pick to write for a fixed number of days a week - 3, 5 or 7. You are expected to read and connect with inspiration 7 days a week. :)

  4. Duration is custom. You can choose from 2 to 4+ weeks.

  5. The writing elements we will work with include points of view, character, dramatic monologue, creative responses, show not tell and basic literary devices to make your descriptions brighter and more! If there are specifics you want to explore, please mention them in your application :)

  6. Price: It will be a per week amount. This includes daily writing prompts, going over your writing + written feedback on all writing, weekly Zoom audio calls, answering any writing related questions you may have and discussing the course. 

  7. First Zoom call + week is complimentary!

  8. Ping me with any questions & to know prices! neharika23gupta@gmail.com

How to apply:

  • Share a para describing yourself, writing intentions for the course, what you hope to take from it and the duration you want to opt for: 2 weeks, 3 weeks or 4 weeks or even more.

  • Email this and a writing sample to neharika23gupta@gmail.com.

A little different from Creative Currents, but you can watch this masterclass for an idea:
