Testimonial by Bilakshan Santosh Harsh

I was referred by a friend to Tanya Munshi’s Online Writing Program a few months ago. I have attended the sessions on creative writing just to get started as a writer. This is my first testimonial writing for anyone as a gratitude to the writing journey along with Tanya Ma’am as my mentor.

I have always wanted to start writing and understand the technicalities of how content writing is actually done. Though I had some background of what an article or a story is with my Broadcast Journalism background and my years of working as a TV producer, but the modules and the structure designed by Tanya Ma’am made it even more interesting.

The writing program is so effective that all the inhibitions which I had about writing got cleared as the days passed. As I went through the different modules with simple tools, I realised how it can help anyone to structure and plan their ideas.

All the assignments were demanding that took me out of my comfort zone and made me think how I should go about using the tools from the modules that were taught to me by a great editor and artist herself. She not only taught me, but illustrated several examples as a writer and life-changing stories that she heard from other people on how they benefitted from her writing programme.

It did alter my earlier beliefs that I had about writing, which included fears and shyness especially knowing that one has not written before. On completion of this course, I feel wonderful about the whole experience and would recommend it anyone who is looking for a writing program to take up this course without much thought, because you’ll never know how you will be surprised in this writing journey.
