Episode 018: Minal Hajratwala, poet, author, and unicorn of many colors

Minal Hajratwala is a unicorn of many colors, and a poet at heart. Her latest book of poetry, Bountiful Instructions for Enlightenment, includes poems and the script for her theatrical poetry extravaganza, “Avatars: Gods for a New Millennium,” which was commissioned by the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco for World AIDS Day. It is published by The (Great) Indian Poetry Collective, which publishes contemporary poetry books from India under a collective mentorship model. Hajratwala is also a writing coach and teacher helping other authors find their voice, particular queer writers and writers of color.
