Essay plug

Shameless plug department: As I mentioned here before, I won this year's Outlook/Picador nonfiction competition. Outlook magazine has just published my essay and the two runners up (Tishani Doshi and Geralyn Pinto) in a booklet that's enclosed with the current issue of Outlook (dated May 16). Those of you who can lay your hands on a copy of Outlook, please read the booklet and I'd love to hear your comments.

All five shortlisted essays will be up on the Outlook website in a few days (well, so I'm told), and I will link to them from here. The shortlist is:
  • Ankush Saikia, Spotting Veron
  • Samanth Subramanian, In Search of the Razor's Edge. Samanth has things to say about A writer and his web-blahg.
  • Geralyn Pinto, Re-Routing
  • Tishani Doshi, Excerpts from the Journal of a Delusional Widow
  • Me, Ride Across the River

Congratulations!The essay was worth it.I really liked the title 'Ride across the River'.It has so much to say once the piece has been read.Thankyou Mr.D'Souza, may be i'll become a traveller with a purpose some day.

Dilip D'Souza said...

Why thank you, Ms S. Do let me know about your travels.

ms. silly said...

Mr.D'Souza,I guess ms. silly was silly enough to have talked about travelling when she still has to get admission in a college.I have been to Mumbai,Jim Corbett,Nainital and Goa.But ofcourse, you dont need to know anything about these places that you must have visited several times.I would like to go to North East India. I liked Tishani Doshi's essay a lot!

Dilip D'Souza said...

Ms S, why should it be silly to write about travelling? Not in the least. I have never been to Corbett, never east of Sikkim, and I have been to Goa for a total of three days in my life. So there you are. I would like to go the NE too.

ms. silly said...

Thankyou.I was looking for something to write about and I think I'll write about my trip to Jim Corbett in my blog.I would like you to have a look at it.And,sir,call me Tanvi,if you have problem calling me by my self assigned name.
