I’m so thrilled to share my list of publications/News/Events for the month of April 2020. Being the National Poetry Month, I got a lot of opportunities to collaborate with lots of poets and took part in numerous open mics.(One of the Oldest running Open Mic in the USA since 1989 ) I was also was nominated in the Literature Category iWomanGlobalAwards and was also shortlisted as Top 10 finalists in the State Level Poetry Contest NAMI NJ.
This was also the first time I got to take part in the #PausePoetry Challenge by WNYC Studios and I was lucky to be selected twice for their second and third week of prompts respectively. I also got the amazing opportunity to collaborate with Kate Belew, Editor of MIlk Press, a Press imprint of Poetry Society of New York
Finally, the month ended with a bang when I was invited as one of the six panelists for discussion for an Online series conducted by the Jersey City Theater Centre – Voices Around the World.
Below is the list of all the Journal/Anthologies I got published this month.
Writing has always been my medium for deep catharsis and it has saved me in more ways than I can count. In the strange “new ” normal that we all are living, writing has been the powerful medium that has strung together a lot of us when we all are living in our islands of isolation.
I owe all this and to my writing and to be beloved readers of my blog who has always cheered and supported me all through the 2.5 years of my poetic journey
