Soft Skills Trainer to Writer
Imparting knowledge gives me immense pleasure, but a certain amount of contentment comes from writing. I unleashed my writing skills with a blog a few years ago, and the said blog has over 15 million views now. Mentioning my writing skills, I have delivered content in the form of blogs and articles for various reputed brands viz., Ariel, The Urban Company, Colgate, Ashirwaad Atta, ICICI Lombard, Berger Paints, Kaspersky, etc., apart from writing some press releases for reputed corporates and government bodies.
Vandanaspen was launched in 2019 to share some writing tips with aspiring content writers and authors through content writing and creative writing workshops. Moreover, the other behavioural workshops keep coming occasionally. Hence, you may choose and enroll for any of the upcoming workshops.
Writer to Author
Regular blogging unleashed the writer in me, and I have now won over 500 writing challenges for poetry and story writing. The winning moments gave me the confidence to take a step forward and get published. I published my first book ‘Hues from Cues – A Complete Poetry Writing Workbook for Budding Poets‘ in 2022. The book talks about how to write poetry and includes various poems I wrote that made it to the winners’ list through a writing challenge. There are various tips for writing a specific form of the poem too. The book was also shortlisted in the Popular Choice Category for J K Auther Awards, 2023 and has won the ‘Best Poetry Book Award’ from the Asian Literary Society.
I have won numerous awards for my training and writing skills, which gives me a sense of achievement. While I am still evolving as an author, I am determined to write every day. Subscribe to my blog for daily writing tips and information on upcoming workshops.
