Bound Testimonial

  • “I've taken two of Bound's writing classes so far and both have been immensely helpful. The kind of feedback you get is very insightful and also gives you a writing community. One definitely comes out of this class a much-improved writer and feeling inspired and driven to continue the writing from where we last left class.”

  • Over the past two weeks, Michelle, our instructor, has been very polite and helpful. She made us understand things that we unconsciously know, but often don’t use. I’m an active writer. I participated in this class to improve my writing skills and it was very beneficial. Michelle made us analyse literary texts ourselves so that we write better and achieve the writing goals we've been dreaming about. In each two hour session, participants engaged each other with such intriguing conversations that time really flew by. This class has taught me the importance of living in a community, teamwork, good listening skills and of course, better writing techniques. I recommend this to all writers who want to improve their craft.  ”

  • Michelle D'costa's class was like a visit to a friend's house for some green tea. It comforted me and boosted my spirit. The ideas that came from that class jumpstarted my first literary short story in many years.  ”

  • I really enjoyed Bound’s fiction writing class. It was well-structured and interactive. I appreciated the quality of the community that participated. The class pushed us to both experiment with styles, and stay true to our own voice.  ”

  • In simple words: Michelle is fantastic. I personally went into this class wondering if it was even possible to make me write fiction because it's always been a Herculean task for me. Michelle broke it down into smaller chunks and made it so easy for me. She has a very kind and patient manner of facilitating and is extremely encouraging. I hope to attend more of her classes!  ”

  • The online class was supposed to be a happy escape from the boring lockdown, and instead it ended up being a huge part of my life right now. It was fun to meet so many people, and even more fun to work on all the prompts that Michelle handed out. I'm grateful to Michelle and Tara for organizing this online workshop. I think the online series is going to be easier on people who live in faraway places. The fact that so many people signed up that you had to open a second workshop is testament to how successful your endeavour has been. Looking forward to more classes in the future.  ”
