Metaphors, poetic prose, and abstract musings dominated our seventh writing meetup, unBlock 107. Written and visual prompts were mixed, stretched, interpreted and laid out in unconventional ways, facilitating a major unBlocking of that crippling writer’s block.

The writing meetup had participants sharing important feedback on each other’s works.
The value small details add, quantity of metaphors used and their placing, whether they work, how to improve story structure, and adding more contextual background.

All in all, it was a lovely Sunday evening spent brainstorming, sharing, and writing.

You can read about our previous writing meetups, below, which had authors such as Shanta Gokhale and Anukrti Upadhyay give feedback, and through it, help writers in a way workshops never can.

We believe that instead of passively taking notes, and learning through lists of writing tips, or points, it is more productive to write and share your work – if you want to be a writer, you have to to sit and write.
