Media coverage of ‘Hibiscus’

I wasn’t inspired by another COVID poetry collection that was creating a buzz on social media: I was aimed at a substantial anthology that would provide genuine relief to the readers in these trying times. The Telegraph-t2 carries my interview (both in print and online) today: I told them how it all happened. I’m grateful to my co-editors, Anu Majumdar & Dustin Pickering, and Bitan Chakraborty, founder of Hawakal, and all contributing poets for helping me curate Hibiscus: poems that heal and empower.

“Crisis makes literature more rich and powerful. Poetry will emerge as more potent, more earthy, and more relatable.”
