An author, poet and publishing consultant, Sutapa Basu also dabbles in art and trains trainers and is a compulsive bookworm. She is an irrepressible story teller. Her poetry is an evocation of Nature resonating with mystical introspection. A thirty-year old professional career as teacher, editor, and publisher has seen her traipsing across the vast Indian subcontinent with short detours into nearby Nepal and Bhutan and not-so-nearby Dubai and the United States while working with Oxford University Press, India and Encyclopædia Britannica, South Asia until she decided to strike out on her own. Sutapa is an Honours scholar from Tagore’s Visva-Bharti University, Santiniketan and holds a teaching as well as a masters degree in English Literature. As a publisher, Sutapa has developed and published around 400 books. Recently, her short story was awarded the First Prize in the Times of India’s nation-wide WriteIndia Contest. She has co-authored Crossed & Knotted, India’s First Composite Novel and Defiant Dreams, Tales of Everyday Divas. Kaafiyana, a poetry anthology and Muse India carries her poetry. Her poetry and short stories have been published online by Readomania, India and Café Dissensus, USA. She has edited Crossed & Knotted, India’s First Composite Novel, Chronicles of Urban Nomads, and Rudraksha published by Readomania. Her work is showcased on her website and
