Valley of Words seeks the involvement of premier institutions of Dehradun to help make this one of the most engaging and involved literature festivals of the Doon Valley! After all, a festival is all about working for, and with the community, especially the younger generation, and those who nurture their creative potential
Writers at School Program
Many of our Authors and resource persons will be happy to visit your school, and talk with your students. You may like to organize a special session for your student teachers. We would prefer if the program in your school is an "open" event to which the neighbourhood and community is invited, but the decision is wth the school. The responsibility of the Instituation is limited to arranging the transport of the author from Madhuban Hotel
Teachers as Discussants and Rapporteurs
We would encourage faculty engagement with the Valley of Words as Discussants and Rapporteurs. This will not only increase the interaction among writers and faculty, it will also build lasting and long-term relationships with the institutions. Moreover, the teachers and the school they represent will get coverage on the social media, live webcast and in workshop report. Thi will lead to a postive synergy among the stakeholders.
While the writers at the School Program and Teachers as Discussants can be be obviously be held only during the festival period(November 17-19) the workshops and interactive sessions may be scheduled from mid July to October as a prelude to the Valley of Words
