The Women’s Web & JustBooks monthly writing theme, Book Talk, is back! This time, we draw inspiration from the brilliant Kamala Das.
Each month, we feature a theme centred on books and reading. For November, we have a writing cue for you, drawn from the work of poet and writer, Kamala Das.
For November, our writing cue is:
“Ask the books that I read why I changed. Ask the authors dead and alive who communicated with me and gave me the courage to be myself.” – from My Story by Kamala Das.
Use these lines as your inspiration and interpret them in any way you like. You are welcome to explore any form, be it an essay, short fiction, poetry or something else.
Send in your entries by the 18th of November. (Deadline extended by two days due to Diwali week!) Entries can be anywhere between 250 and 800 words in length. Email them to email@example.com. The 3 winning posts will be published on Women’s Web on the 20th, 22nd and 24th of November and each winner will receive a Rs.500 gift voucher from JustBooks.
