Hi all,
We are a Pune, India based "no-fee" journal of literature, poetry, and art. We offer emerging and established authors, an opportunity to show-case their work. We plan to publish short stories, flash fiction, poetry, and art. We have just launched the Shishir (Winter) 2018 collection of short stories and poetry. In August 2018, we released the" Water Anthology", a crowd sourced collection of short stories, authored by five Pune Wrimo authors. The anthology presents seven stories, based on the water theme.

Do you want your work to be carried here? Watch out for calls for submissions on the Submit page. Our editors are very fastidious about the story, flow, narrative, and grammer. Anywork you send should be grammer- proofed. To celeberate the Shishir 2018 collection, we present a graphic of a scene depicting Shishir, winter, an ancient Indian Madhubani painting.

The Shishir, 2018 and the Water Antholgy are our first two collections. We plan to have many more in the coming years. So stay sharp!
