An artist never works under ideal conditions but the past few months were the severest test an artist could be put through. In this imperfect world, we have twenty-one writers attempting to bring some sort of order in the chaos with their words.
As you step into ’21, this anthology- a potpourri of 21 stories, will give you company. Coming from some of the most promising short story writers, these stories come from a personal space they chose to share with us. There are four stories from writers who are under eighteen and this anthology is our way to encourage their efforts and their passion.
All the stories have a different flavour and tenor to go for every mood. The pieces, each one of them, shall leave you with something to dwell upon –it could be the plot, a character, the setting, or the narration. Pick it up and allow yourself to ease into their worlds
Is it yet another motivational or an inspirational story? Or is it a collection of stories that would change the outlook of your life?
The answer is, “Not at all!”
Arising from the Dust is all about creating a life from the ashes. It’s a compilation of our day to day events and how we have been embracing the ashes called challenges in our lives and how we have been evolving.
Grab a cup of coffee and a read, this would definitely be “Coffees and Conversations.”
Why did Anil get picked out of a room full of other Anils? What’s with Susan’s risky plan and how do things change for Tara after she discovers a bone-chilling secret? If this isn’t enough to intrigue, elsewhere in the book, Ramu and Shamu have called it quits and everyone’s in shock. There’s more.
Art as catharsis and behind the scenes of anxiety. From the journey of a fidgety literary mole to the dreadful diagnosis of writer’s block. Tales through generations with a sprinkle of magical realism, and an ode to Calvin and Hobbes. Murder. Mystery. Magic. Love. And titters. Lamp-Lit Parchments serve you all and more.
‘The Lamp-lit Parchments’. The latest song of the writers and artists of Write Club, Hyderabad, Lamp-Lit Parchments is a compilation of poetry and prose dished out by as many as thirty different authors, writing on diverse themes and genres such as fiction, horror and comedy, and in a variety of formats. This year’s edition also features authors as young as thirteen, catering to a special Children’s Section in the book.
All we have done is add a roof over Hyderabad’s bibliophilic congregation and watched the manuscript unfold over cups of chai and banter and a mutual love for stories. Write Club, Hyderabad can’t wait for you to see what’s in store.
