Planning another initiative.

After the successful video readings in the time of pandemic, Setu wishes to begin a select edition of more video conversations, this time between invited writers reading each other's works; kind of peer engagement and dialogue of another kind.
Title: Peer Reading and Rendition

The valued guests would be further requested to ask their peers to send the soft copy of their best works for this project, in our fourth year of monthly bilingual production, to their email addresses and then, both the participants would do the videos, in mutual consultation, keeping the editor in the loop.

The participants should send only a three-line bio and two poems of 24 lines maximum for a video of minutes. The files must be sent by We Transfer or Google Drive to the Setu address [email protected], with subject line: Peer Reading.

Other friends interested in this project may query with the editor for participating in this conversation by sending a one-line intro and general themes of their poems.

Thanks for your cooperation and support.

Stay safe.
Take care!
