Creative Writing Workshop 2013 – Day 6
April 13, 2013

Our writing together has come to an end or has just begun. It depends on which way one looks at it. I have been doing workshops with children for years.

April 9, 2013

I consistently learn from the children and I know I will learn from our interns; Francesca, Karuna and Eva too. What I learnt today was that children are indeed philosophers even by accident and Anousha’s question about Who are you? was so profound. The scaffolding of Karuna for Aryan led to a beautiful piece of […]
