We are excited to present, Likhawat (writing), that features South-Asian authors and storytellers in a panel where they discuss their creative process and inspirations. In our recently concluded panel, we talked to South-Asian authors Farah Ali, Shetal Shah, and Debasmita Dasgupta to learn what keeps them inspired to keep building stories.

Here’s what the panel talked about, their need for creating stories that are diverse, their childhood influences, and what keeps them going. From Urdu reading, to Bengali writers, to underrepresentation of Asians in literature, this group covered a lot of ground. In addition, they all gave us incredible tips on how to keep building stories and honing our creativity.

The authors also share their upcoming work – series books, novels, and their films!

This South-Asian author panel spoke to our cohort of Blue Sky participants earlier in day discussing their creative process. The authors also shared books and projects they’re currently working on and were an inspiration to the writing cohort excited to meet with these experts!
