Is Creative Writing a hobby you have dabbled in, but always felt that you could do better with it? These creative writing workshops will get you going!

Whether it’s poetry, short stories, plays, creative essays or even screenplays or a novel, training to write better can certainly help you take your writing up a notch. 

While some people believe that you’re either born with it (or not!), the truth is that even those who have some inborn talent, can get better by learning and practising. 

Quite apart from the joy of writing (and perhaps getting published), creative writing skills can also help you become better at expressing yourself in the workplace, make you a more empathetic listener or just help you structure and think through problems better. 

There are also many job roles opening up for folks with creative writing skills such as in copywriting, public relations, screenplay writing for films & web series and related fields.
