  About

Amrita is a British-Indian who always finds it difficult to sit still. She graduated from The University of Nottingham with a Masters in Architecture (what?!) and has worked in London, Mumbai, Paris, and Kolkata. She has written for The Nottingham Post, The Bangalore Mirror, The Huffington Post, Glutton Magazine, Tripoto, Altertrips and Honest Cooking. She is also the Prose & Poetry Editor for Unabashed Magazine and Editor-in-Chief of Oratoria.

Over the last six years she has been a part-time editor and book cover designer, and is now concentrating on making a full-time career shift into the literary world.

She’s addicted to travel and is always hungry for pizza. She is also addicted to buying stationery and not using them, but that’s a story for another day.

She co-owns Altertrips and blogs about her meltdowns at The Subjectivist.
