In this episode, let's talk about creative writing, which is a very fascinating thing because it's subjective. It's interpretive, according to the creator themselves. Do you write lyrics, poetry or haiku, or do you just prefer not to write instead and prefer to illustrate?

Can we connect with each other through the power of creative writing, specifically through haiku? Who better to talk about this with than Dhrupad Karwa. 

Dhrupad or Dhru is the founder and CEO of HaikuJam, a mobile app promoting self-care through collaborative writing. It's simple. You write haiku together with strangers all around the world, writing one line at a time to connect with each other, through the power of creative writing.

It's a fascinating premise, which prompted Dhru to branch off to their new incoming product called Inspo by HaikuJam, which is the world's fastest inspiration generator.

We talked about:

  • His origin story: starting HaikuJam by recovering in a tea house with his best friend,
  • Dhru's thoughts on the power of human connectivity through haiku and expression of creative work.
  • The differences between insights, ideas, and inspiration
  • Inspo by HaikuJam. What is it trying to achieve? What are the different possibilities when we can search and display various creative outlets for anyone to have a look at for inspiration. 
  • What does inspiration mean to us?

Enjoy!
