Book Talk Episode as part of my nomination for Cherry Book Awards Season 4

I was in an interview since A Leaf upon a Book (2022) had been nominated in Cherry Book Awards Season 4 for the category Best Poetry Book. It was lovely talking about my poetry collection, my favourite reads, significance of marketing and inspiration behind my works! And yes, since there were 5 interviews, mine is in the end.

Poetry Showcase at The Blank Page event by ConnecTree

I showcased my work and read poetry from my collection A Leaf upon a Book (Leadstart, 2022) in a virtual event The Blank Page organized by a community on Instagram – ConnecTree. I enjoyed reading poetry and talking about the story behind some of my poems before a group of listeners who appreciated and liked the work that I’m doing.

Live Session (organized by Clips and Pages)

It was euphoric talking about my hometown in a live session organized by Clips and Pages (a literary arts initiative) on the Mentza app as part of their Independence Day celebrations. I spoke about my city, fascinating facts about it, my association with it, its role to play in my poetic journey, etc. I also shared my experience of writing poetry and did a reading of my poem “Diverse Sensations”, a tribute to my Alma Mater, which is also situated in my hometown… Do check out my session.

Interview with book blogger Zainab Travadi

Really enjoyed the interview. Zainab was a very amiable host. It was a great opportunity to talk about my book, share advice for aspiring writers and suggest some good reads to the listeners… Do listen if you’re intrigued! Here is the interview.

Open Studio and Community Meet and Greet at The Make Space

I participated in a community meet and greet organized by author Aditi Rao‘s The Make Space, a community of writers and artists where I am also a member. It was nice meeting with fellow writers and talking to them over Zoom. I also recited two poems from my poetry collection A Leaf upon a Book!

Interview with The Indian Book Club

Watch my Instagram Live Interview with a member of The Indian Book Club that happened on 29th April, 2022. Watch to see an interesting interaction where we talked all things poetry! So glad for this opportunity. I got to talk about myself, my poetry, my opinions, etc. Very happy that my words got across to my readers/audience. Through such live interviews, my readers would understand my writing better 🙂 My first live interview as a poet and I really loved it. Looking forward to more such opportunities in the future Insha Allah!

The Indian Book Club is promoting my debut poetry collection through a series of posts on both Instagram and Facebook. The posts include: Introduction of the book, Glimpses from the book, About the author, Book review and Author interview announcement.
