"The Unboxing Creative Writing workshop has been a truly enlightening experience for me. The Dostango himself, Hussain Rasheed is a master poet and a treasure trove of insights and the other mentors, Mandhar and Swaroop were thorough professionals and open to answering all the questions that we threw at them. It was also a great platform for gathering like minded people with friendships forged that are still alive to this day. We also got a lifetime access to the minds of Hussain and our peers who can critique and help nurture our works in progress."

"Genuinely one of the best courses. I'm happy that I chose this course, Unboxing Creative Writing designed by Dark Room Poets. The course was well organized and topics were brilliantly covered by the mentors. It was for the first time that I had enrolled for any literature course and was a bit nervous whether I would be able to understand the topics. But all these things were taken care off by the professional mentors, Hussain sir and Swaroop sir. It was all together a full of learning experience from professional mentors and other participants. The most important thing I learned from this course, in the Boris Pasternak words, is that the literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people, and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary and the mentors were able to deliver their lectures to my level of expectation."

"Unboxing Creative Writing is one of the excellent and simplest gangsta ways to unblock your thoughts.The phenomenal writers aid you from start to end in a specific way. It helps in your journey of writing by taking along a lot of memories and friends. They have uncorked so many thoughts to assemble and make it a pack of newness to each writer.
Always a guider
From a way
To convey
Thanks to all Mentors for illuminating a loveless path."

"One of the best things that happened to me was coming across Dark Room Poets and their courses. I had taken up a course 'Creative writing' from DRP and I am happy to have made such a decision. I am a passionate writer who wants to enhance my writing in every way. This course has helped to take my writing to another level. The course content, the mentors and the entire team are lovely. Hussain who leads the DRP team and is a mentor is marvellous. Not just during the course but afterwards also he is there to guide and assist whenever required. He can bring out the poet/writer in anyone. Swaroop has the thorough knowledge and guides in the best possible way he can. Looking forward to joining another enriching session with DRP!"
