We are very excited to report that, for the first time as a collective, we featured in the South Asian Heritage Month 2021. Click below to watch our conversation about Connection.


One of our members, Anita Goveas, teamed up with the wonderful writer Farhana Khalique to bring together an evening of Women’s Flash Fiction readings. What a fantastic honour it was to be a part of this joyous event!

October 2021

This month we were elated to be included as a feature in the Writer’s Circle for the Writing Magazine!



This month, one of our fabulous members, Anita Goveas, was interviewed by the lovely Elizabeth M. Castillo on her debut flash fiction collection “Families & Other Natural Disasters,” out with @reflexfiction.

At the end of January, both Sujana Crawford and Sarah M Jasat were selected to appear in the Foxes and Windmill anthology, set to launch next year. Not only that, Nabeela Ahmed, of course another Koyal Writer, has two students who were also on the shortlist. What a win! Congratulations to all!
