After completing the training, the students will write a short story as the final project. The top 10 stories will be evaluated and receive feedback from an esteemed panel of judges comprising of best selling authors (Kulpreet Yadav and Madhulika Liddle), a renowned columnist (Vinita Nangia), and a senior publisher (Milee Ashwarya). The top 3 stories would win cash rewards worth INR 65,000 and exclusive certificates signed by the jury.
In the training, students will learn to write fiction and non-fiction including screenplay and ad scripts.
