What Our Subscribers Say

  • For those who still think the literature of India is just about gods, the British raj, extreme poverty, Bollywood movies, or call centres full of people mimicking American accents, please read this collection of short stories and poetry from some of India's best and most promising writers. I was especially taken with "The Tree Husband," a short story by Barnali Saha about a woman's longing for a marriage that scarcely exists, longing in the presence of another bond that is far more certain. As well, "Phobia," the story of one young woman who wants to pursue a career and other ambitious goals and does not want to be pregnant (at least not yet) will leave you with a bit of an ache in your heart. Read this collection. As soon as you are able.

  • "The story fragment is excellent, makes me want to read more of it...perhaps that's what flash fiction is about....but i wish it had not ended so abruptly, could have been longer. But very good use of words.You can develop it further, I feel."

  • I wish to convey my special thanks to Nikhil for liking my work and commenting on it so aptly. Thanks a lot for your support too and i think the workshop was quite educative and helpful. I read the edited version and tried to learn better ways of structuring sentence, grammar and syntaxes, following the corrections you made. Thanks a lot once again for that .

  • It was a pleasure working with you on this piece. I found your feedback pretty useful and the quality of the piece has improved immensely. Not to mention, I have had the experience of submitting my work to various magazines, most of them do not even reply in case the work is rejected. Its so rare that your magazine is not only providing feedback about the pieces you reject, but is also helping writers to improve on their skills by having Skype hangouts with them. Kudos to you folks!!!

  • To begin with, I find myself fortunate having got an opportunity to be a part of eFiction workshop. It is, indeed, a great platform for all the newbie writers like me. It is grooming the writers, to be precise. I am very grateful to eFiction India for letting me be a part of this workshop as I did learn a lot during the process.A special mention about the extremely talented Deepti Razdan, who helped me edit my story and also, taught me how to minus the irregularities, confusions to make it appealing. She was available whenever I emailed her considering the time lag and took in to consideration even my slightest uncertainties. It definitely was enlightening and supportive and couldn't have asked for a better person. In short, the entire workshop was a great experience and I would love to continue to be a part of it. Keep up all the efforts you guys are taking to make us better writers.
