Coming to a Festival Near You

Bookaroo, India's first ever festival of children's literature, is happening on the 22nd and 23rd of November 2008 in New Delhi. On the second day I will be conducting a two-hour long workshop on speculative fiction for children between 12 and 16 years. The festival promises to be a lot of fun and I am particularly thrilled at the chance of meeting Jeff Smith, the creator of Bone.

Am also on a panel discussion on comic books and graphic novels that is happening at Lady Shri Ram College on the 21st of November as part of their literature festival. Will put up more details as they become available.

A judging/ moderating gig at Mood Indigo, IIT Bombay's cultural festival, is also on the horizon this year. Haven't visited their campus in a long time.

My official site should be up and running in 2009. A lot of writing projects are taking shape and coming out of their incubation chambers and am dying to share the details. In time, gentle reader.
