A project by Geetanshi (@book.noted) and Sagarika (@sagarific)
Throughout our years as readers, bloggers, and bookstagrammers, we’ve noticed very few South Asian books, authors, and creators in the spotlight. We wanted to change this, and create a community of individuals who are passionate about highlighting the South Asian experience through the books they read, write, and share with the world. The goal of this project is to create a space where South Asians can come together and support each other, and also be the first to comment on literature and media that features us as main characters.
How can I join?
1. You must be of South Asian descent (Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Afghanistani, Nepali, Bangladeshi, Maldivian, or Bhutanese) and have a platform where you talk about books, whether it be a blog, bookstagram, booktube, etc.
2. Please fill out this form, where you can share your information to be added to the directory.
3. By filling out the form to join, you are granting us permission to include the name and link to your platform in this directory. If there is any information that you do not wish us to share with authors and publishers, please let us know in the form! This will in no way inhibit your appearance in the directory 🙂
