Anyone Can Write – A Writing Initiative for Children
Ms. Dheera Kitchlu, a noted children’s author has recently launched an initiative called ‘Anyone can Write.’ This encourages children to fully explore their creative potential through the medium of writing, with a view to being published.
All children interested in writing can send in their pieces to her at [email protected]
Entries for the first session will be accepted between April 1 and August 31, 2010. She will help each child create original, individual work, through a one-on-one interaction. The final version will be published as a part of a compilation by young authors under the Serene Woods banner.
Ms. Dheera Kitchlu is an educationist, and a full-time writer and illustrator of books for children. She was Principal of Sophia Nursery School and then the Vice Principal of Sophia Polytechnic, both in Mumbai.
She has written and published five books for children, between the ages of 8 and 15. They are set in contemporary India, providing rich vignettes of daily life. Her first book was commissioned by the Indian Association for Promotion of Adoption and Child Welfare, and is a picture book to help adoptive parents explain the process to their children. She was also commissioned by the National Association for the Blind to write a collection of stories about blind women achievers.
