Quill Club Writers enables school children to become published writers of mainstream fiction. Under the close guidance of highly experienced mentors, the young authors develop original ideas, write their stories and refine and edit their manuscripts. Little by little, the book gets ready. Even before the writers step out of their teens, ther juniors and peers at school are reading their stories as part of their curriculum. The authors’ works are also on Flipkart, Amazon and some premium bookstands.

How We Work

We select the writers through two writing tests and an interview. At the writing sessions spanning two weeks, the writers develop their story ideas, structure them, write the stories down and complete their manuscripts. Finally, well written, ruthlessly edited and well-designed book is ready for launch.

The Journey So Far

In four-and-a-half years, Quill Club Writers has produced 35 books with nearly thirty schools all over the country. Currently, we are working with more than 200 writers at a dozen schools nationwide. Nearly 200,000 children at two dozen schools across the country are reading our books as part of their curriculum. And more books are on their way.
