JustBooks Kalidasa Road, Mysore had a get together of authors in the making recently. It was attended by JustBooks members, young and old alike.
Dr Niranjan Vanalli, Dept Head, Mysore University addressed the gathering. He recommended that authors in the making ensure that their published books get registered with the ISBN issuance authorities. This would ensure that their books would get a much wider audience. Dr. Vanalli also touched upon the importance of observation and the role of using one’s imagination to write. He mentioned that in his experience, he has come across many writers who are self motivated. Dr. Vanalli referred to a book written by him on creative writing which he urged the attendees to read and gain confidence to write.
The gathering was also addressed by JustBooks Manager in Charge, Ms. Poornima V Kumar who spoke on the importance of cultivating a reading hobby.
