  • Additional info

    Although our editors plan to keep themselves anonymous for the time being, here is a little information about us: dillinama is the consequence of a friendship between two students of literature who share mutual affection for poetry, film and the historic city of delhi in India. we are both masters students now, still immersed in these things. currently residing in london and delhi respectively, our personalities carry remnants of spaces that brought us up. conversations around those splintered parts of self led to the creation of this journal that welcomes other such narratives, from across geographies. we run with the philosophy and hope that art can create a space of belonging by revisiting themes of memory, moments, movements, and more. while we appreciate the intuitive and instinctive aspects of writing and perception, we particularly admire work that manages to execute ideas with self- awareness, critique and technical brilliance.
