                    Webinar on developing skills to become an Author   

                    “A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.”— Richard Bach
                    In an attempt to acquaint students with the process of becoming a young author and to equip them with writing techniques, the literary club organised a special guest speaker session, with its very own founder and VIS alumna, Anushka Bansal, who is a student author, heads the Trade and Economics department for the International Youth Politics Forum, is the COO/Co-Founder of a social enterprise, and has a TEDx talk to her name.
                    She mainly emphasized the pathway of being a student author and how important it is to indulge in free writing and record all thoughts without inhibition. It is only when all the thoughts have been put down on paper that one should move towards cohering the piece of writing by editing, altering, correcting the writing and, taking feedback on it.
                    It was an interactive session and gave the students a fertile ground to voice their concerns and learn a great deal about the same.
                    Overall, it was an enriching and inspiring experience and was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
