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 showcase their work. We plan to publish short stories, flash fiction, poetry, and art. We have just launched the Shishir (Winter) 2018 Theme Fire collection of short stories and poetry, based on the theme fire. In August 2018, we released the Varsha (Monsoon) 2018 Theme Water, a collection of short stories, authored by five Pune WRIMO authors. The anthology presents seven stories on the theme Water.

Do you want your work to be carried here?

  1. Please use Open Call at Submit to send in flash, short stories, poetry and art on any topic of your choice for our consideration. Submissions are open throughout the year.
  2. Our Themed call for the Vasant (Spring) Theme Earth, 2019 issue is live. Check out the details Submit.
  3. Our editors are very fastidious about the story, flow, narrative, and grammar. Any work you send should be grammar-proofed.

To celeberate the Shishir 2018 collection, we present a painting in the style of the Madhubani school depicting the winter season.

The Shishir (Winter) 2018 and the Varsha (Monsoon) 2018 are our first two collections. We plan to have many more in the coming years. So stay sharp!
