Back by popular demand, T2F welcomes its second Creative Writing Workshop of 2018 on Sunday, February 25th at Faraar Gallery!
Creative writing is a skill that allows us not only to produce entertaining or thought-proving content for readers and audiences, but also provides us access to the inner workings and untapped corners of our own creative spirit and minds. So, whether you’re an aspiring novelist, writing hobbyist, or simply want to develop the craft of creative expression through storytelling to reach a deeper understanding of self (be it at work or at home), join us at T2F for a Creative Writing workshop with critically acclaimed author, Bina Shah.
About the instructor:
Bina Shah is a Karachi-based author of five novels and two collections of short stories. Her previous novel, A Season for Martyrs, was published in the US, France, and India to critical acclaim, while her forthcoming feminist dystopian novel, Before She Sleeps, will be published by Delphinium Books in August 2018. A regular contributor to The New York Times, Al Jazeera, The Huffington Post, and a frequent guest on the BBC, she has contributed essays and op-eds to Granta, The Independent, and The Guardian, and writes a regular column for Dawn. She is a graduate of Wellesley College and the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and is an honorary fellow in writing at the University of Iowa.
