  • Eligibility

  • Fees
If you have a creator in you then we will help that person manifest inside you. Creativity is not about what’s going on in your mind, rather how you let that take shape outside of it. Creativity is spontaneous but giving shape to that creativity requires discipline, process and method. We will help you with a method to your madness. Be it a short story, a poem or a film script -- the best creative writers in Mumbai will tell you how to go about it.

Class timings:
Since the institute offers Part Time courses, the classes are held from 6:30p.m to 8:30 p.m from Monday to Friday. There will be no lectures conducted on Saturday and Sunday.  However, guest lectures and seminar will be conducted in the week days in the afternoon. There is an annual holiday too which will be declared in due course.


The institute believes in ensuring that each candidate is trained in the manner that he or she is geared to take up professional assignments after the completion of the course. Students shall also be evaluated on the basis of their initiative to submit assignments and projects on their own, based on what they have learnt in the classes. Their interaction in the class and participation in discussion and academic activities and their general interest in the course shall help them in their internal evaluation. There will be some marks reserved for attendance also. A student who does not submit any project work or assignments will not be qualified to get the Diploma.


Students are given internships assistance at the end of the course.
Students who have successfully passed their HSC or equivalent to HSC from a recognized college, are eligible to apply. Students who have missed their academic year or have taken a drop are also eligible to apply at the institute.
