Write and Read - Workshops for Children

Via Write and Read

Write&Read is a story writing program that is designed to draw out the storyteller in every child. Through workshops and a story writing contest, Write&Read will allow children to convert their creative spark and imagination into some great stories.

Write&Read is an initiative of Hewlett Packard India and the writing workshops in the program will be conducted in association with Katha, an NGO that focuses on bringing quality reading and education to children living in poverty. Renowned lyricist Prasoon Joshi will serve as a mentor to program participants, guiding them in their creative exploration.

The Workshops
The Write&Read workshops will be held across six cities in India - Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai and Pune.

Each workshop will consist of three half day sessions with a mix of interactive sessions and several activities for inspiring creativity.

The Contest
At the end of the workshop, participants can create and submit a short story for an all India story writing contest. They can print vibrant color copies of their stories using the web-enabled HP printers that will be available at the workshop locations.

Winning entries will be included in a book to be published and distributed to libraries by Katha. This way, winners will instantly join the ranks of published young authors!

To find out if you can register for a free, fun and idea-filled workshop in your city, email us at or talk to your school to see if it is participating in the program.
