We have great pleasure in presenting the January 2018 issue of Spark themed ‘Celebrating the Written Word’. It’s a wonderful milestone for us as we complete eight years this January! We can’t put in words what an incredible journey this has been and we must say that this issue has turned out as a fitting representation of all the wonderful things we have been able to do at Spark in these eight years! Our contributors celebrate and pay the perfect tribute to the written word through fiction, poetry, non-fiction and art, bringing in some amazing perspectives. We also feature two interviews this month – with Philip John, writer of the popular story blog, ‘Labyrinths’ on Facebook & Bhumika Anand, Founder & Director of the Bangalore Writers Workshop (BWW). Plus we have a delightful list of avid readers sharing their memorable reads from 2017. We have so much in store for you in this special 8th anniversary issue and we can’t wait for you to read it and let us know what you thought of the edition! Happy reading in the brand new year!
