The place:

Kangra valley is one of Himachal’s most pristine valleys that is home to India’s First UNESCO World Heritage Village. The snow-capped Dhauladhar mountains, numerous glacial rivulets, pine forests and mesmerising open green /golden fields along with the fresh mountain air, all bring a sense of peace and calm. Out here you can actually be away from all the daily chaos and truly be in sync with nature. 

Join us for your writing escape. This will be an experience of combining the writing time, the spirit of nature, the craft of the locals, authentic food blended with the culture of the land. 

Interact with writers on their journey and published authors over informal evening drinks or morning walks and brainstorm about your work-in-progress or your finished manuscript.

You need to send your details to be accepted to participate in this.

IS This For You?

Are you a writer who had once scribbled something and have since then burdened with life's unkind twists and turns or perhaps your inner voice has been too critical for you?

Are you having enough ideas but no time to sit and write? That meeting or the chores at home too much for you to handle? Then this escape is just for you.

You will not only get time to write but also get to take part in a workshop to learn about branding yourself. You get to brainstorm that idea which has been gnawing you and all this, amidst a breathtaking environment for you to realign yourself with your soul.

An experience that will be truly inspiring and you will cherish for a long time!
