Who we are
Write Club, Hyderabad is the largest group in Hyderabad with 2500+ members, overall. Established in 2015, we have conducted 250 meetups overall of various kinds, engaging an average of 35 participants at each event to foster writing.
Our mission is to provide constructive support and enable an open, honest and secure critique group for writers. We believe creativity is a personal art form, but writing is a craft honed by practice. We aim at enabling writers with all the necessary tools to use their creativity best. Our Meetups aim at helping writers reach their goals in a supportive, collaborative, social setting.
Events We Do
One of the members of Write Club (anyone with a participation count over 2 consecutive meetups) hosts a session. They bring forth a theme and writing exercises. We all then write to the host’s prompts and guidelines for about an hour. Once we’re done writing, we read out our write-ups (optional). We also exchange feedback and constructively critique each other’s works. Entry is free, anyone with an interest in writing can walk in. Bring your writing devices and we’re all set! We promise to provide you with good coffee and a super-creative conversation. We have Write Club sessions every alternate Saturday afternoon from 3 to 6 PM at Lamakaan, Hyderabad
In this concept workshop, we explore how simple observations of people around us shape our distinct perspective. We ask questions such as “What makes this young man sitting in front of me look anxious – Is it his clenched fist or his knitted brow?” We see people around us and try to read what makes them – them. The workshop begins with a brief journey of the location, and the group split to identify subjects. Then we proceed with interactive exercises.
The participants are encouraged to fill a template with their perspective. To conclude, we share our observations with the group. The experience is open and enriching for participants of all age groups across all demographics. Defying the mechanics of daily life, the participants will have a digital disconnect and observe to appreciate their social surrounding, at the moment. Characters Go will be taking the participants through an enriching experience.

We usually recognize a busy road with smoke, vehicles and noise, but it could also be the aroma of street food, age-old shops across and many neglected artifacts. We walk across a place often not realizing the essence of the place, entirely. The imagery, the elements, the people and the mood define the unique perspective of a place.
In this workshop, we realize the setting we’re in, across places to map their take through observational experience. The workshop begins with a guided journey of the surroundings to discover every nook and corner. The participants pick their subjects, and through a course of interactive exercises, the participants will blog their experience. The participants can write poetry, prose or use any chosen form of expression. The participants then share their work with the group. Walking with Write Club is an experience that is fun and fascinating across all age groups and demographics.

Just walked out a theatre thinking ‘1.5 stars and that’s only ’cause the seats were great and the popcorn had unlimited cheese’? Can someone say ‘ouch’? Ever watched a film and thought the script could be bettered. As in, set it on fire and give up screenwriting ’cause your writing skills are worse than Ishaan Awasthi’s I Taare Zameen Par and he atleast could weild a pencil bettered. Welcome to ‘Brutally Honest’, the workshop that teaches you how to be ruthless reviewers of the worst to the finest art of this era.
Here, we work on how to review scripts, books, delicacies to a three-person death metal scream fest at Moonshine and art pieces that look the same upside down. We aspire to critique with a pair of magnifying glasses and yank up standards for literature and art over time, here at ‘Brutally Honest’ and if pouring over someone else’s work and letting yourself be either blown over or bogged down gets you riled up, do sign up.

Are you a wonder kid? Do you often read? Does the idea of writing make you crack out of your imagination? Are you usually in the fandom of your favorite book heroes/heroines? And lastly, would you like to discuss your reads with some really smart fellow children of your class?
In this thread, we help children aged 8 and above as different subsets to explore reading and writing.
And to enable this, we have our star kid, super writer – Pranav Vutukuri leading the way.
Each coin has two sides. Each situation has three sides. And finally each person has a gazillion shades. It’s all about the perspective, they say. So in this session, we explore that idea further.
We start the session with writing a basic premise or an idea in one paragraph and from there on we begin to re-write the same premise 4-5 times adhering to different challenges or difficulties provided. The biggest and the constant challenge is the limited time provided for writing each version, which keeps decreasing as the session progress. By the end of the session, we have multiple versions, rather various different perspectives of an idea we started with.
The whole point of this event is to enable our members to see and understand how to approach an idea in various different ways. At times, when we change the perspective of something, it gives a whole new meaning to it, and this element is one of the key learnings to get better in writing. Also, we as writers tend to get lazy and laid-back since there is no urgency. Hence the time limitation forces you to think out of the box and come up with ideas in the go.
