The Book That Hooked Me

Posted: June 15, 2012

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

In June’s As You Write It writing theme we want to hear about the book that has most impacted your life.

Books are such trustworthy and reliable companions that often we find ourselves lost in their pages, daily cares and mundane worries happily forgotten. But we will always have that favourite book; the one which taught us a valuable lesson, which changed us somehow, which inspired us or touched us profoundly and made a powerful impact in our lives. Tell us about this unforgettable book in your life.

Where to send: Send in your story to [email protected] with ‘The Book That Hooked Me’ in the subject line, and your story as a word/txt attachment. Do include the name we should use if we publish it, and a brief introduction to yourself (2-3 lines) in the mail.

By when: Please send in your stories by June 24th. The 5 best stories will be published on Women’s Web the following week, i.e. June 25th onwards.


– The material should be previously unpublished elsewhere. (Copyright stays with you and you’re free to subsequently publish it elsewhere).

– Keep it between 250 and 600 words.


Each published entry gets a Flipkart voucher worth Rs.200.
