Workshops: PG Wodehouse

Hello fine readers: A workshop organised by Out of Print author, Nisha Susan, and Gaurav Jain.


Spend a weekend with the master of laughs and learn some profound lessons along the way.

On Reading: How to resist your education, be aware of prevalent conventions, enjoy the classics and consume both pop and high culture.

On Writing: How to keep a discipline, increase your efficiency, plan meticulously, understand your market, create universal appeal, be prolific, form zinger sentences, create fantastic characters and plot intricately.

On Living: How to remain cheerful in adversity, not misinterpret events, draw strength from childhood, keep lifelong friends, and foil all the zany schemes, dumb employers, bossy employees, horrible relatives and pesky pets out there.

In general, how to read better, write better and not be an insufferable literary git. Or something like that.
