As a writer and poet, 2020 has been a year of growth and experimentation for me. I am especially fascinated with the visual elements of poems such as space and shape. Here is an article I wrote for Bound about three popular and interesting types of experimental poems.
Aishwarya was featured on Trent University’s website for her graduate research on feminist zines. This creative research project resulted in 2 academic papers, 2 paper presentations, and the creation of ang(st) zine. Read about her experience here!
Aishwarya has an MA in English (Public Texts) from Trent University.
Aishwarya is the creator and editor-in-chief of ang(st): the feminist body zine.
ang(st) was founded in 2019 as a part of her graduate research at Trent University, Canada. It explores the physicality of feminism – our relationships with our bodies, with society, and with other bodies. Through a series of themes it aims to showcase how we interact with our bodies differently, and have diverse experiences and concerns. Most importantly, ang(st) is a space for marginalized voices and identities: bodies that are considered outside the realm of ‘normal’ and ‘able’.
ang(st) is published twice a year with short prose, poetry, and visual art pieces.
Aishwarya has contributed articles to Feminism in India, an intersectional feminist platform, since January 2017. She was featured as their Writer of the Month in March 2018.
