I'm an editor at Mythic Picnic, and a former editor at Barrelhouse. Currently, I am helming a new literary anthology: the South Asian Avant-Garde. See here for more details.
I helmed a South Asian-specific Barrelhouse special issue of short fiction, artwork, and conversations about the future of South Asian literature in 2019. A video-recorded reading and discussion based on the issue was held at the Brooklyn BookEnds festival on 20th September 2019, at the Asian American Writers Workshop in New York, NY. You can view the event, featuring Abeer Hoque, Nur Nasreen Ibrahim, Sarah Thankam Mathews, Seyhr Qayum, and myself here.
We also held a panel at the 2020 Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference entitled "Who is 'Desi'? Tradition & History in South Asian Native & Diasporic Literature" as well as an offsite reading from current work, featuring Devi S. Laskar, Aditya Desai, Aatif Rashid, Jaya Wagle, and myself.
