Soul Craft Signature Workshop | 24th Jan – 5th Feb
Soul Craft is a venture by Manas Mukul and Namratha Varadharajan to hold space for poetic development.
Registrations open for Soul Craft’s Signature workshop!
Team Soul Craft started up in August of 2021 and have hence run multiple poetry workshops successfully. Our participants have created over 300 + poems during the course of the workshops. The team is currently working on bringing out their first poetry anthology exclusive to Soul Craft workshop participants. In December 2021, they conducted a Poetry Festival on the theme of “Poetry Matters” to explore and emphasize the need for poetry. Since the team has received multiple queries for our Signature workshop, we have scheduled the next instance of the workshop in Jan 2022 and opened up the registrations for the same.
About the Soul Craft Signature Workshop
Over the span of 12 days, we offer you a range of poetic tools to craft your poetic voice. Writing, sharing, reading, and critiquing each other’s work shall be at the crux of the workshop. By the end of the workshop , each participant shall leave with approximately 10 poems, but more importantly many techniques added to their poetic arsenal and a direction for their poetic journey.
Mary Oliver’s words describe our mission for this workshop – “to empower the writer who stands between two marvelous and complex things—an experience (or an idea or a feeling), and the urge to tell about it in the best possible conjunction of words.“
Who is the workshop for?
This workshop is designed to cater to beginner and intermediate-level poets. Written a few 100 poems? This workshop shall help you to enhance your poetic voice. Never written a poem before? Don’t worry. We believe that this workshop will give you the tools to kickstart your poetic journey.

The organic process from observing a thing, observing your thoughts, coming up with the words that resonate with your emotions, and then taking those emotions forward in the form of poetry coupled with a range of poetic tools and techniques – That’s our target and that is what we are offering. Like it is said, Why just write poetry when you can write better poetry?
