Do you have one sentence of advice for new writers?

Writing is about building new associations with yourself; discovering areas that you never found, nuances that you never expected to find and connections with your world that you never knew existed. It is that knowledge that brings more joy than even being published. So enjoy the process!

Raised in the bylanes of Mylapore, Ballygunge and Vasant Kunj, Rajashree Anand’s perspectives on life are a juxtaposition of the traditional, cultural and modern medley of her growing up days. She currently finds herself juggling family life and her newfound love for creative writing. Her debut foray into writing sees her use literature as a medium of voicing the issue of cyber-bullying. Several of her poetic overtures have already found their rightful place in the high profile anthology titled The Dance of the Peacock (by Hidden Brook Press Canada), Roots and Wings: An Anthology of Indian Women Writing In English and in various online journals including Muse India , Writers Asylum, Urban Confustions, and Indian Ruminations. She has degrees in English Honours and Mass Communication and has been an educator for the International Baccalaureate and IGCSE in India and Malaysia. She currently lives in Gurgaon, India with her husband and two sprightly sons.
