How exciting it is to tell people that an e-magazine especially revolving around Indian writers has been conceived! That I undertook the job of bringing my brainchild to life, supported by a friend. That submissions for the first issue (partly, a tribute to Agha Shahid Ali) have flooded in well. That whatever we are receiving has been brilliant. That we hoped to bring it up to showcase talent from the Indian subcontinent alongside those from around the world and the very hope seems to be fruiting.

Bold + Italic got to be brought up around the fortnight of May (2018!), while the submissions window opened with the beginning of week 3 — 21 May, 2018 — and we are accepting pieces (poetry and prose!) from the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan) or related to these places from anywhere in the world — or pieces that are just brilliant (even if those are not related)!
