Our Story

Long ago, before the dawn of the Age of Facebook, a tiny online community for South Asian writers turned up among the pages of an ancient and forgotten virtual land called Orkut. As more and more people fond of the written word learned of this community, its membership grew, and soon thousands had joined the tribe and partaken in its goings-on. In 2006, this tribe of gifted wordsmiths formed its own homeland on the web, where the critique of peers was given and received freely, lively conversation was made, and fast friendships were formed. Thus was born Desi Writers’ Lounge (DWL).

Since those ancient times, DWL has come a long way. Publication of an online literary magazine, called Papercuts, began in 2007. Six years later, the magazine went into print. An annual short story competition was founded. Writing workshops were offered online and offline. An international network of Readers’ Clubs was set up. Events were held. Stalls displaying DWL merchandise were set up at international literature festivals.

Today, DWL stands as an established platform and workshop for aspiring South Asian writers and Papercuts is known for the versatility and accessibility of its content.

The team behind this amazing project continues to grow and to this day volunteers its services entirely for free.

WORKSHOP

The Workshop is DWL’s signature space for dialogue, inspiration and constructive critique.

Designed as a collaborative forum, the Workshop allows members to post their writings, interact with fellow writers and receive detailed feedback on their work from other members.

For writers not looking for critique, the Workshop offers sections where writers can simply share their work. Our regular columns provide writing prompts for the writer who is feeling inspired. Members also get access to writing resources and tips for getting published.

So, join the fun. Be heard and be inspired.
