Creative Lives: The Interview Series

The creative mind is a brilliant place where characters lurk, plots unwind, and critical thinking shimmers. Creative Lives: The Interview Series will shed light on this magical space, the mind of the South Asian diasporic writer.

This website will house timely conversations with prominent writers. It will reveal the nascence of their writing careers, their inspirations past and present, their creative processes, passions, interests and world-view. It aims to illuminate the writers’ worlds as well as their art. This South Asian Diaspora International Researchers’ Network (SADIRN) project will publish monthly in 2018 and beyond. Its goal is to enhance collaboration between SADIRN members, to extend SADIRN’s public profile, and to support creative writing research. This venture is co-directed by Associate Professor Chandani Lokugé (Monash University, Australia) and Susheila Nasta (Queen Mary University of London, UK). Dr Alexandra Watkins is Project Manager, assisted by Chris Ringrose and Maryam Mirza.
