Annalemma’s next print edition theme is India. We’re trying to expand our realms of understanding of Indian literature so I’ve been on the lookout for Indian lit mags. A past contributor, Kuzhali Manickavel, pointed me in the direction of Pratilipi, a bilingual literary magazine. Published both in Hindi and English, Pratilipi is independently funded and serves as an open space for conversation/debate between diverse sorts of writing and writers.
I suggest reading Voices from Chernobyl by Ingrid Storholman, a fictionalized account of one woman’s experience of the nuclear disaster in Ukraine. It’s a story about how power comes in large and small forms, and the disaster and beauty it can cause. Go check out Pratilipi!
