Way with Words
PEN PAPER DREAMS
Healing through self expression is Pen Paper Dreams’ mantra, founded by US born singer, songwriter and blogger, Amanda Sodhi who conducts workshops and open mics on creative writing and poetry slams. Sodhi runs one of the few places in the city that have regular open mic nights that are specific to each form of performance art instead of clubbing it all under one roof. She also makes it a point to offer constructive feedback. “We actually take time out to share individual feedback and demo clips with each performer so they can continue to improve their skills,” says Sodhi.
The brand also conducts one-of-a-kind postcard writing workshops that Sodhi says is “an attempt to revive the lost art of handwritten communication.” Sodhi believes that words offer a form of writing therapy. “One participant was able to make peace with her father, with whom she had a strained relationship, by writing a thoughtful postcard to him for the first time in her life,” explains Sodhi.
