We are just back from the Duckbill Workshop in Bangalore, three wonderful days with some very bright, funny, opinionated and talented writers. The setting could not have been better: the sunny Hippocampus library in Koramangala, surrounded by books, children’s voices and the happy people who are lucky enough to be working at Hippocampus. What was interesting was this was a very diverse group in terms of their literary interests, and there were more than usually disparate views on pretty much every subject we discussed.
(There was also a garden to hang out in and amazing biryani a very short walk away!)
We will be publishing some of the stories from the workshop on this blog, and we hope that in the fullness of time, we will get to publish some books by these promising writers.
Our thanks to Vimala and everyone else at Hippocampus.
