Join me Saturday 30 January 2021 for a workshop that helps writers expand their range?

About this Event
This special one-off workshop brought to you by award-winning author, Shreya Sen-Handley has been designed to help writers realise the range of creative writing they are capable of doing and guide them on the road to expanding their repertoire.
Writers, like actors, can get typecast. But the ability to write in a range of formats, genres and styles not only means further opportunities to be published and read, but to grow as a writer, push boundaries, and enjoy our calling more. It means realising our full potential as writers, and as individuals too. This workshop will help you realise how versatile you are and guide you in expanding your repertoire.

My first newspaper column for 2021 is about the art of leaving

“Trump may be an extreme example; of bad grace, ill intent, reprehensible actions, and orangeness, but it’s not just those we place on pedestals who make debacles of departures. In more modest ways, we’re all deficient in the art of leaving well. In my personal life, I’ve been hopeless. Not only do I not know 50 ways to leave lovers, I haven’t even mastered one…” Do click on pic for the rest of the article?

In my last newspaper column of 2020, I discuss autism

I am autistic, but I didn’t know that before this year. In my last column of 2020 for newspapers Asian Age and Deccan Chronicle, I write about this life-changing discovery for the first time, along with my love and concern for the young neurodivergents growing up in an inhospitable world.

And the image, in fact, is an illustration for my children, scrawled one sleepy afternoon seven years ago, of their Mommy as Wolverine, long before these revelations had emerged.
