Megha Rao

I am a poet and an artist, represented by Red Ink Literary Agency, New Delhi. Two of my Fiction Titles were published by Penguin Random House in 2015 and 2016, and my poetry features in a multitude of online magazines like The Open Road Review and New Asian Writing. I am also the compiler and editor of the anthology of poems by Half Baked Beans, the growing literary platform for aspiring writers. After graduating from Madras Christian College, I commenced an internship with publishing mogul, Harper Collins, and then went on to pursue my Masters in English Literature in the University of Nottingham, England. I am currently working with Terribly Tiny Tales, Mumbai, as Content Lead for the TTT app!

Damini Kane

I came up with her first story when she was six. It was really bad, but hopefully I have improved since. My love for reading can only be matched by my love for writing. It took twenty-three years of devouring books like The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, and Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell to produce one novel, my debut, titled The Sunlight Plane. I also writes short fiction, and was longlisted for the DNA Out of Print Short Fiction contest in 2016, for my piece, Aleppo. I am also one of the selected winners in a nationwide talent hunt, Campus Diaries 25 Under 25, which highlighted the skills of twenty-five young people in four categories: Photography, Technology, Design, and Writing. Throughout my life, I have started many, and completed three (despite only having published one) Novels. My favourite genres to write are fantasy and adventure, though I am very drawn to the human element in these; my writing almost always puts a sharp focus on a characters’ emotional development, although a tightly spun plot and an exciting, intriguing story-world are always welcome!

Kavya Sharma

The course was fun and informative at the same time...  It wasnt the usual teacher-student atmosphere...  Even though I've never seen my course mates or my captain till date.. It felt like as if they were close friends. Tasks were fun and the experience on the whole was worth it.

Aishwarya , Novel Writing Workshop

I published my book in 2017. The understanding of how a novel is written and published, came from the MyCaptain novel writing workshop. The ultimate courage that I needed was instilled in me by my mentor.

Ananyah Dhawan , Novel Writing Workshop

I always loved writing, but after the MyCaptain Novel Writing workshop, my writing got channelized and productive, misplaced sentences turned into flowing narrations. My Captain made writing of a novel possible for me.
