I’m so excited and thrilled to be part of this esteemed publication. This one brings so much joy and validation to my creative writing. Amidst the rejection and learning, there is some instant that restores faith in your writing skills..This is one of them. So thankful to the EIC Shrenik Rao for publishing my poem “Simple Pleasures“.A poem that talks about human needs and desires and the simple pleasures we all are made up of.
