Our 3rd class/workshop was held on 21 November 2015 at the Naad Foundation premises. We started with focusing on creative aspects of mind and its most amazing invention, the language; then did some free writing exercises before moving on to actual writing. Participants wrote short prose pieces, short stories, poems, journals, bios…. In a relaxed atmosphere.
No one is required or forced to write in the class, but everyone feels inspired to do so. And it is fun, a lot of fun indeed, to share these writings at the end. Creative writing gives expression to creative thinking, essential to excel in arts, sciences and business.

Creative writing is a pink&blue joy, with sea green depths.
Next class will be held on Saturday, 28 November, at Naad Foundation, # 109 – 12414 82 Ave, Surrey. For more information, phone Gagandeep @ 778 883-2677. We are grateful to Radio Red FM, Joy TV and Radio My FM for helping us spread the word.

Looking forward to our next class tomorrow, Saturday, 14 nov 2015

The class on 7 November 2015 was a success -more than expected. We started with a brief meditative silence, simple language exercises and moved on to writing. All the children and adults wrote and shared their pieces. It was a joy to see creative faces beaming with excitement, hands moving in rhythm.

Creative writing expands your mind.
You explore, imagine more, think deep. and deeper.
You discover words, write.

Featuring 2015 Prize Finalists

The Dhahan Prize was founded in 2013 to call greater attention to the wealth of literary works produced in Punjabi around the world. This afternoon we present readings in Punjabi and English by the writers shortlisted for the 2015 edition of this prestigious prize. Written in a language that is as diverse and changing as its culture, Punjabi literature describes the social, cultural and political lives of Punjabi speakers, not only in South Asia but around the world, and expresses the unique cultural ethos of this global community. Join us in celebrating the wealth of Punjabi storytelling and literature, and hear from the contenders for the 2015 Dhahan Prize.
