Indian writing

We received another entry from an Indian writer over the weekend. Indian writers have enjoyed quite a bit of success in the Global Short Story Competition over the years and their stories so often provide a beguiling mix of fine writing and powerful emotion.

That we receive stories from India is not surprising. Researching this blog, I came across an article published in the Guardian in 2009 and written by writer Anita Desai, in which she said: “By the number of manuscripts that arrive daily and hourly from India on the desks of British and American agents and publishers, I would guess no country has more aspiring writers than ours.” Here’s to hearing from more of them.
