The Media & Public Relations Committee of the Institute of Management, Nirma University, organized a workshop on writing in association with ‘terribly tiny tales’. The workshop was organised on the 21st of October, 2018.
The workshop was conducted by Ms. Sanjana Singh, Chief Curator, terribly tiny tales. She began the session by explaining how Mr. Anuj Gosalia cofounded TTT in 2013, with the idea of making a micro-fiction platform. Then, Ms. Singh walked the audience through the art of writing TTT by encouraging the students to write about the experiences of their lives, portraying a variety of emotions and ideas.
Ms. Singh shared a few tips on how to write effectively. Besides promoting the ideas in a right manner, making tiny tales also consists of writing with brevity in mind- not to overload the reader with information. Word associations also help; whenever one is stuck while making a tale or writing a story, it helps to dwell on the word and to convey the emotion of the word in the story. Hereon, Ms. Singh moved on to explaining the art of writing long stories. The students were given a chance to showcase their stories on the main feed of TTT. They were also given an idea as to how they could eventually become an approved writer for ttt, once a certain number of stories written by them were accepted on to the platform.
Workshops like these are an important part of any student’s life- outside of the academic development, they help the students discover their interests in ways never experienced before.
