Meetup 054: Satires and sarcasm!

Last weekend, one of our favorite, the most prolific, no-nonsense and happy-go-lucky writers, CV would be hosting a session. CV writes subtle, simple stories much reflecting the person he is. Over a lot of time and a lot of coffee, we finally got CV to host a session.

CV spun the session on Satires. As popular as they’re in the current world, writing a Satire was just as difficult.

The Exercise:
