The Flash Fiction, SMS Poetry, Flash Essay and Poetry Slam contests at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival are now open for submissions. Go here (and scroll down to the relevant posts) for more information.
You will notice that I am one of the judges for the SMS Poetry Contest. This means that if any of you are entering, I don't want to know anything about it.
I will also be participating in the KGAF on Saturday, 2nd February and Sunday, 3rd February, in two separate events.
On the 2nd, at 5pm at the David Sassoon Library, there will be memorial readings for those who passed away in the previous year. I will be reading from Revathy Gopal's work. Revathy was a dear friend, and I've posted about her here.
On the 3rd at 5pm, David Sassoon Library, is the Fresh Off The Shelf event, where people with books out in the preceding year will be in conversation with a moderator and read from their work.
Do come for either/both if you're in Bombay and you're free.
This is the last post from me until mid-Feb for these and other reasons. Things are really crazy as it is and I've just taken on some additional and very urgent work that I have to complete before I leave for Bombay.
So though the posts are queuing up in my head, they're going to have to be patient and be all Brit and stiff upper lip about it. It might help if some of you donated a newspaper or an umbrella to keep them occupied until I return.
