A workshop was organised by ASHA (Association of Sacred Heart Alumni) in collaboration with Centre for Excellence on Saturday, 13th May, 2017 from 6.30pm.

The workshop was conducted by our alumna Jane De'Souza.

Jane is considered one of the funniest writers in India today. Her novels include the recently released, Happily Never After, a hilarious love story; and the detective-comedy, The Spy who Lost her Head. She has also authored the best-selling laugh-out loud SuperZero series for children, now releasing its third book SuperZero and the Clone Crisis in as many years. She has written other books for children, stories, reviews and advertising campaigns which have travelled across the world. Jane is a management graduate and creative consultant and lives in Bengaluru.

Her workshop was aimed to help budding writers, both young and old. The interactive session covered the following:

  • how to focus more on creative expression
  • therapeutic benefits of just expressing oneself
  • independent styles of each person, and
  • their obstacles to writing

Participants, 30 in number, were largely students from senior school. Besides, members of the Book Club, and the ASHA alumni were also present. Participants found the session very interactive with a lot of takeaways.

The President Designate of ASHA, Manjit Marwa welcomed the participants and highlighted the achievements of the Association. The Association’s major focus is on supporting education for the girl child. With this workshop ASHA has charted a new course as part of its annual activities.
