POILE SENGUPTA



I am a novelist, poet, playwright and short fiction writer, for both children and adults.

I began writing for children when I was in college. In 1968, I began “A Letter to You”, a humour column for the children’s magazine, Children’s World, which ran for nearly three decades. I have regularly written for the children's magazine Target and columns for children in Deccan Herald, Bangalore, The Times of India, Bangalore, and Midday, Mumbai.

And about Collages, send me your address and I will send you a copy. Will you tell me a little about your research?(less)
