Desi Writers' Lounge is an online, 24/7, 365 days a year writers' workshop and community. The bulk of the workshopping is conducted on our forums, where our members and writers undergo intense critiquing sessions.

Papercuts is our biannually published online literary magazine, which contains our membership's best material of the half year as well as thematic content. Submission is open to the public. Submission guidelines can be found here.

We request that all prospective members submit a writing sample (or a reason for joining if not a writer) with their registration request. Think you have something to offer? If so, join us!
