Some fascinating writers one can meet in a writing workshop.

Some fascinating writers one can meet in a writing workshop.

Writing workshops can be both challenging and rewarding. And besides the writing challenges, you also encounter certain types of writers who tend to crop up in every workshop. I’m not saying these writers are necessarily bad. But sometimes you do need to accept them with a pinch of salt.

And here are some fascinating writers I met during the workshops.


The 20-Something Memoirist.

A college sophomore,

but she is writing a memoir,

based on real-life events.


The Uber-cool Writer.

He breaks the Twitter,

a stud in writer’s disguise.

He also writes sometimes.


The Word Inventor.

You give up in vain,

understanding his language.

Is this English only?


The Aesthetic Writer.

Writer. Thinker. Dreamer.

Everything is aesthetics.

Authentic real writer.


The Critic.

She is not here to write.

She is here only to critique.

Everyone writes shit.

Thanks Flourish

Very astute of you. I enjoyed your observations and creativity.

Thanks, Ann. I am glad you liked it.

Ann Carr from SW England on February 26, 2021:

Yes, we've all met most of them - I like the 'stud in disguise'!

No idea what niche I would fit into but then I prefer not to be labelled. I've never done a writer's workshop but I do attend a book club and the critique there is quite enough for me - we are all very generous but there are times when a story is, well, .... rubbish!

Constructive criticism, yes, but there we draw the line. Would I be brave enough to run some work of mine past them? Maybe not!

This is a fun read, Ravi.

I am not sure where I fit in here but this is interesting to know of such writers.

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on February 26, 2021:

Well written Ravi

I believe imagination is an important tool a writer should have,

without imagination, a writer doesn't exist.

thanks for sharing

Blessings

Thanks, Chitrangada for your kind comments

Interesting read, and I enjoyed it.

I think this platform has all of those, which you have mentioned above. May be more than that.

I believe, every writer is a thinker first.

Thank you for sharing.
