Noida: “Writing is an art and a craft that needs to be developed through deliberate practice and study over a long period of time. If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time to write also- that’s what I have learned. If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it and be a part of our mission at Writers Meet,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of Writers Association of India addressing writers from all over India and abroad during the 7th annual writer’s meet at Marwah Studios, Noida Film City.
“Fortunately, some of the world’s greatest writers, the ones who mastered the craft and whose names have been passed down to us through time, gifted us not only with their stories. Many of them took time in-between the creation of their novels and short stories and poems to codify their writing philosophies, their writing strategies, and their writing habits,” added Dr. Marwah while releasing two of the books including Shabdon Ke Indradhanush by Mamta Soni and Bandhu Ke Mukh by Pratibha Johri.
