Excited to report that Out of Print is partnering Bangalore’s 2013 literary gathering, Lekhana. The event takes place on January 18th , 19th , and 20th .
Organised by Sangam House, Lekhana 2012 brought a wonderful, committed gathering of Bangalore residents interested in literature to the NGMA premises. Readings, discussions, presentations, theatre in a warm and genuine atmosphere of love for literature was what set the gathering apart.
This year, Lekhana will be on the grounds of Jagriti Theatre and the theme is ‘writing the spoken word’. Out of Print has been involved with the marvellous Arshia Sattar in some of the discussions on oral histories. But the thrust of our engagement is on 'dialogue in short fiction'.
The impact and the crafting of dialogue in short fiction will be examined via a panel discussion and a forum. Also, there will be the amazing opportunity of a workshop conducted by Rebecca Lloyd, one of the most interesting and sensitive writing mentors in the business. Writer and editor, Rebecca Lloyd who is in India during Lekhana, will lead ten participants through a master class on working with dialogue. Do grab the chance if you are in Bangalore on the afternoon of Saturday, January 19th.
