Poetry at Sangam




Sharanya Manivannan’s first book, Witchcraft, was described in The Straits Times, Singapore, as “sensuous and spiritual, delicate and dangerous and as full as the moon reflected in a knife”. She was specially commissioned to write and perform a poem at the 2015 Commonwealth Day Observance at Westminster Abbey, London. Her next book of poetry, The Altar Of The Only World, and a book of stories, The High Priestess Never Marries, are both forthcoming from HarperCollins India; a children’s book, The Ammuchi Puchi, is forthcoming from Lantana Publishing, UK. Sharanya writes a personal column, The Venus Flytrap, for The New Indian Express.
