Here's a wonderful new magazine started by a former student of mine. Please check it out!
e k a k s h a r a (www.ekakshara.com), an annual multiculural magazine, invites literary and visual artists to submit work for its 2009 premiere issue.
Ekakashara is a single letter in Sanskrit that represents sound. e k a k s h a r a establishes a forum that nurtures individualism shaped by nationality, ethnicity, gender and religion. It aims to stimulate curiosity, exploration, and understanding by sharing—through words and images—inner voices from many perspectives. The magazine especially supports emerging artists.
