What We Do

QUILL CLUB WRITERS

A Delhi-based mentoring-and-publishing house, we enable school children to become published writers of mainstream fiction. These young authors learn how to write, edit, publish, release and sell professionally produced books in the market- all under the close guidance of a journalist-turned-author and an experienced editor. Even before they step out of their teens, their works are selling on Flipkart, Amazon and on select bookstands.

Ours is a writing programme for young authors. We select the writers through a series of tests and an interview. The writing sessions are held at school, during school hours, where the writers develop story ideas, structure them, write the stories down, edit them and complete the manuscript. We also decide the book title and its cover design. Finally, a brilliantly written and ruthlessly edited book is ready for launch.
