Avid Learning in association with Juggernaut Books presents Writing Across Different Platforms, a unique opportunity to explore the art of writing across various platforms and genres through a workshop with celebrated Author and Blogger, Kiran Manral. In the age of social media, writing across different platforms is not uncommon, but is definitely not easy, all intricacies and techniques considered. There are infinite ways to get your story and your voice out there, but often it’s easy to get caught up in the multitude of platforms available to you. Learn how to seamlessly transition between these different platforms and how to build a strong base in writing across the board. Kiran will be joined later in the session by special guest speaker, Journalist and Editor of Scroll.in Naresh Fernandes will speak about his journalistic journey from print media to digital and give insights into concepts like short form journalism. He will expand further on necessary innovations in journalism and using Scroll.in, a leading digital venture, as a case study, will give insights on running, editing, distributing and funding this unique platform.

Join us for this workshop to gain access to a wealth of information on the art of crafting your unique voice in a digital age.
