Creativity is like a soldier loyal till you die. Everyone is born creative but very few remain so by the time life is in its full swing. To polish the writing skills of students a workshop on creative and poetry writing by Dr. Meenakshi F. Paul, double gold medals in English – M.A. and M.Phil was organized where she shared her valuable advice for students when it comes to writing.

AHGS.POETRY.12.5 (38)She said that it is not possible to teach how to write since it is something inbuilt. Various topics such as element, plot, characters and unity of time, action and place were explained to the students. The workshop was extremely entertaining as through her voice modulation she spell bounded the listeners and the whole auditorium was brought to life with laughter. She simplified the entire art of story writing to make it look like something very tempting and entertaining.

After the workshop all the students were filled with new confidence and were set to take up the writing competition that was held thereafter. It was based on two categories – prose and poetry writing. In Category A students from Classes 9-10 and in Category B Classes 11-12 participated.
