    Bound Testimonial

    • I am so grateful to Tara for pointing me in the right direction at the crucial stages of writing my book. While working together, every time I read her notes, suggestions or advice, I remember thinking, ‘That makes perfect sense! I should do exactly what she says!’ And it always turned out to be a change for the better, making all the difference. Tara has given clarity and conciseness to my jumble of thoughts and it is with her help that I can show my work to the publishing world with some confidence. So again, I am very thankful!

    • This was really amazing and I never thought that there would be/ could be a session where someone could actually tell you about publishing. Most of the information was new for me now I actually know how I can go further and use other resources thanks so much Tara and Aishwarya. This workshop was a unique experience I had very little information about traditional publishing and other than the technicalities I really appreciate the part about the thought process of editors.

    • I found the workshop quite useful as I had no prior knowledge of how publishing works - the concept of query letters, importance of body of work, how publishers decide what to commission, etc. It’s great to get a sense of this from people working in the space.

    • Thank you Tara and Aishwarya for the session! Had some great takeaways. I found the chance to get personal feedback amazing, along with the tips and tricks mentioned.
