About Pondicherry Poets
Sahitya Akademi award-winning poet, translator & playwright Anju Makhija and poet, writer & founder-editor of The Brown Critique, a critically acclaimed literary journal and Gayatri Majumdar, launched ‘Pondicherry Poets’ in 2017 to create a platform for poets to share their work at various offbeat venues in Pondicherry, Auroville and elsewhere.
Since then, PP has hosted collaborative events that brought poets, dancers and musicians together. Our offerings have included readings/ performances at Aura Shoppe in Puducherry, Kalarigram near Auroville and at Shantivan Gardens in Mumbai earlier this year.
