About this event

The Journal of Expressive Writing is more than a publication. We aim to be an engaged and supportive community of writers and listeners. Giving our focused attention to each other’s voices, stories and writing is a generous, necessary act of humanity, repair and celebration.

One way to deepen the content of the Journal is to broadcast live interviews of Journal of Expressive Writing’s authors discussing their books. Readers can watch the host and panelists engage with each author about the deeper intents and meanings of their book as a way to further enrich our readers’ experience of beautifully curated expressive writing. Every month, the Journal BOOK BUZZ will interview a new author about their most recent book.

On May 8, 2022 at 11am EST, the Journal of Expressive writing will be hosting its very first Book Buzz series interview! Producer and host Angella Lee, along with panelists Drs. Basudhara Roy and Nandini Sahu will interview the poet Dr. Anita Nahal about her most recent book, What’s Wrong With Us Kali Women?

Anita Nahal, Ph.D., CDP is a poet, flash fictionist, children’s author, D&I consultant, professor, and higher education administrator. Nahal has authored one academic book, two books of poems, one book of flash fiction, and three books for children, plus over 30 articles that have appeared in journals & blogs. Nahal’s most recent data-oriented study on Ethnic and Cultural Diversity at HBCUs was published as a chapter in a book in 2015. Her creative works can be found in Aberration Labyrinth, Confluence, Better Than Starbucks, Aaduna, River Poets Journal, Colere, and Lapis Lazuli. She received an Honorable Mention in the Concrete Wolf 2017 chapbook competition. Nahal is also a contributing editor with Aaduna.

Anita Nahal’s third book of poetry, What’s Wrong With Us Kali Women?—which she will be discussing—was nominated by Cyril Dabydeen, celebrated Guyanese Indian Canadian poet and novelist as his choice for the best poetry book for 2021 for the British, Ars Notoria. It has also been prescribed as compulsory reading in an elective course on Multicultural Society in the Department of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences at Utrecht University, The Netherlands.

Anita teaches at the University of the District of Columbia, Washington DC. She is the daughter of Sahitya Akademi, award winning Indian novelist, Chaman Nahal and educationist, Sudarshna Nahal.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.

Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
