Aditi Rao​

Writer. Educator. Potter. 

“Aditi Rao’s writing is imbued with the attentiveness of a lepidopterist, the tenderness of an epicurean, and the quiet unflinching fortitude one associates with surgeons on the battlefield. The frontlines are those of attrition and loss — of the body, of memory, of time, of space, and of love — where the poems themselves are acts of resistance, of survival,  and ultimately, of celebration and transcendence. A warning: ​The Fingers Remember ​​​​can enter and occupy crannies of the reader’s mind, humming reminders that are at once unnervingly intimate and strangely new. And it stays. “

    I just reached Stuttgart, Germany, for my 6 month long residency at the Akademie Schloss Solitude (look them up, they are amazing!). During this time, I will finish up the last round of edits on the second book of poetry, begin work on a nonfiction/ oral history project I have had at the back of my mind for years, work on a ceramics-poetry series, and take the time to read and meander and learn from the artists from around the world I am living with :) I will be blogging about this residency here, hopefully once a week. Of course, this also means that all workshops, readings etc., in Delhi are on hold until August 2018.
