About the course

A companion on your writing journey

Section Shape Image

My work with Womaning in India is all about telling the stories I want to share with my readers.

With the Humaning Storytelling course, I use stories to create a safe space where aspiring and practicing writers can find their voice, practice their craft, and overcome the barriers holding them back.

Most often, the biggest barrier a writer faces is that nagging inner voice that tells you your words are just not good enough.

This course will help you overcome that voice.

Online Workshops

The course includes four writing workshops spread over four weeks, each four hours long.

Minimal gyaan from me. Some group work. And a LOT of actual writing and storytelling!

Assignments and Resources

Our four weeks together will also include four weekly assignments. I will share resources that will help you with them, and share my feedback after you submit each assignment.

But please note that I am not a marks-ist. Unless you use a Bollywood reference, in which case, 1000 points to you!

About the Facilitator

Hello ji!

Section Shape Image

I hate to brag, but how else will you know if I am qualified to do this? So here goes.

My name is Mahima. I am a former civil servant, an IIM Bangalore alumna, and a Harvard-published author. I have co-authored a book with the Prime Minister of India. Over the last 15 years, I have worked in the development sector with organizations such as UNICEF, the World Bank, and Tata Trusts.

I am also the creator of the award-winning newsletter, Womaning in India. The stories I have told through Womaning have been read over half a million times.

This course has helped me WRITE and not procrastinate, gave me a sense of accountability to stay consistent with my newsletter, enhanced my writing skills, offered me a bunch of reading materials, and fostered a supportive writing community.

Shraddha

March 2024 cohort

The cohort Mahima had curated was filled with incredibly smart writers I had the honour to attend classes with. It felt like six close friends come together and write. 

Ekta

March 2024 Cohort

Mahima's style is engaging and encouraging. 'Freshers' like me, with no previous writing experience, can easily participate and have fun while learning a new skill. She explains the nuances of focus on listening and observing, especially when interviewing to capture and authentic story, which are useful life skills too!

March 2024 Cohort

"This course is exactly what I needed

to feel confident in my writing once again."

The next two batches of the course will run in April and May 2024.

 

  • Batch 2: Saturdays, 6, 13, 20, 27 April 2024 (9am-1pm)
  • Batch 3: Saturdays - 4, 11, 18, 25 May 2024 (9am-1pm)

 

If these dates do not work for you, you can still sign up to be waitlisted for future cohorts. Waitlisted participants will get a personal alert for future cohorts, ahead of the public announcement. 

You don’t have to be - or even aspire to be - a professional writer to benefit from this course.

 

If you are someone who enjoys sharing and listening to stories, you are more than ready for this course!

I intend for each participant to do a lot of writing in this course, and want every bit of your writing to get all the attention it deserves.

 

So the batch sizes will be quite small at a maximum of 10-15 participants per batch.

The course fee is INR 15,000, plus GST.
