In line with the magazine's vision to encourage free and liberal speech, this year we are catering to an audience in six cities across South Asia and considering themes that critically design our sociopolitical fibre.
Presenting, The South Asian Literary Forum, 2017
New Delhi, Karachi, Colombo, Kathmandu, Dhaka and Srinagar.
Panels, workshops and open mic sessions on literature in:
1. Combating Gender Inequality
2. Resistance on Political Speech
The Forum will be followed up with a themed issue of The Bombay Review, and all performers stand a chance to get published in the South Asian special issue.
This is one of our most ambitious projects yet. And we need your help. If you believe in combating gender inequality and resistance on political speech, and would like to show solidarity for the project, please make a donation.
