I am now OPEN for commissions on poetry & short stories!

Treat yo'self to an exhilarating adventure--where you get to be the star.

A bespoke poem or short story also makes a dazzling gift for your loved ones-- whether romantic, platonic, or somewhere in-between!

Prices start as low as $30, with at least 50% of profits to a racial justice organisation.
(Cheaper than skydiving classes!)

Take a look at my site for more info aadarsh.ink/pages/commissions

My creative nonfiction series, Interesting Times, will be a series of diary extracts about the bizarre (and often surreal) new world we've found ourselves living in. Watch this space for more info!

Poetry describing death, grief, and violence against Trans people. 

My poem, On Trans Remembrance, has been published in Ghost Heart Literary Journal! It's one that's very close to my heart in the lead up to Trans Day of Remembrance.

(Also it's a total impostor syndrome buster--everyone else has tons and tons of publishes and degrees and PhDs and shit, and I'm just there right at the top with my little story <3)

Took a little Internet break over the last week or so. In the meantime, Analogies & Allegories Literary Magazine published my story, The King's Discourtesy, in which a king's love of power and privilege brings him the fate he deserves.

This magazine's a truly gorgeous collection of stories, poetry, and art that tell the side of the fairytale you didn't get to hear. Read it here:

:plural_heart:​ poetry 

We speak aloud with our only tongue;
many voices plied in ever-growing
interwoven ribbon-threads--
each colour its own story
in the grand display. Within it
all are whole; each colour sings
nothing but harmonies.

Finally got my flash creative nonfiction piece, Passing Buses, up on my site! Originally published in Ayaskala Magazine in July.

mini rant 

When a magazine charges $9.99 to submit, AND charges its readers to read, AND doesn't pay anything for work, you know it's a waste of time

I really with Fediverse could see Sparknotes' tweets

Request for feedback, Trans Day of Remembrance

Childhood/ Sibling story (in a good way) 

My sister just told me about a story I made up for her when she was about 6 called Baldilocks And The Three Pears, where baldilocks was a bald teenager who broke into the 3 Pears' house and ate them and stole all their stuff. I might have to have another go at that one.
