  • Priya decided to write about her journey of finding out she was adopted as an adult as a way to find closure after her parents had passed away. Her story is fantastic for those who have been adopted or for people who are considering adoption.
  •  Anand feels that poetry really has to embrace the moment and be very short and brief and make its statement in a short space.
