On Thursday, April 23, PICT Creative Writing Program Director Anna Polonyi hosted “Writing Your Way Through The Pandemic,” a creative writing workshop at the Go Viral Festival organized in Almaty, Kazakhstan. The workshop was held online due to pandemic-related travel restrictions.
Arguing that “a period of uncertainty and challenging times could actually be a good opportunity for creative writing,” Anna used the workshop to share advice on how to start writing, hone one’s writing skills, and capture readers’ attention. You can watch the video of Anna’s workshop below.
Anna Polonyi is also the producer and host of Quarantine Quill, a daily PICT creative writing podcast offering listeners writing tips and prompts for as long as PICT creative writing events are on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
