Writing is not an external quest but an internal journey!
Layer by layer as we dig into our mind, we find out how we think and what we feel. Once we reach the fountainhead of our thoughts, writing comes naturally. That’s the process and goal of the program ‘Unearth’.
Writing is a process of opening yourself inside out. The program builds an ecosystem where all children together find their self expression, understand their unique thought process, discover their creativity and learn(also unlearn) nuances of creative writing.
Note: The program is meant for not only those who write but all children who desire and deserve to express themselves.
