Writer, former editor and current USyd Postgraduate student teaching creative writing and helping develop English writing skills.

Methodology

I conduct classes in the form of group discussions and approach one specific aspect of writing per class, around which a weekly exercise is based. For example, during the week of studying character, we shall be reading certain character centric works, looking at how the writer develops characterization and then diving into a group feedback based exercise about character and its uses in writing.

Background

I am a student of literature who is pursuing his second master's degree and previously worked as an editor at Dorling Kindersley for a period of two years. I have a Masters in Creative Writing and have studied under the aegis of accomplished writers and screenwriters such as Urvashi Butalia, Belinda Clare Castles, Belinder Dhanoa, Sudeep Sen and Sabrina Dhawan. I have experience of participating in and conducting writing and reading workshops.
As a writer, I am aware of the frustrations and the anxiety that budding and even experienced writers face while sharing their work among peers or strangers. My approach addresses this by taking small steps in the first few classes and concentrating on constructive criticism to build confidence.
