About Us

South Asian Writers started as a Twitter hashtag that went viral in 2017 highlighting and elevating writers of South Asian descent

We invited writers from all over the world to introduce themselves and their work, using #SouthAsianWriters. 3,000,000 people engaged with the campaign with submissions coming in from the UK, South Asia, the US, and Canada.

South Asian Writers is a proud partner of the UK’s first ever South Asian Heritage Month.

We’ll be supporting the literature side of SAHM with author spotlights, guest posts, book giveaways, panels, and our memory curation project, Our Stories Matter. For details of how to get involved, head to our pinned tweet on Twitter

Our community is so diverse and intersectional and we are here to amplify and support you and your work; this month and beyond. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for updates.
