“To inspire social change through thought-provoking South Asian films, art, and storytelling”



3rd Tasveer South Asian Literature Festival (TSAL)

We are celebrating the third annual Tasveer South Asian Litfest (TSAL). This event will feature South Asian writers participating in unique virtual events focused on various themes through book readings, panel discussions, and Q&A.


TSAL 2021 will showcase a stellar lineup of writers from South Asia and its diaspora; this diverse programming will contribute to a colorful, powerful virtual literary event. In 2019, its inaugural year, TSAL brought together several well-known South Asian writers like Amitava Kumar, author of Immigrant Montana (one of Obama’s 2018 book picks), Fatima Farheen Mirza, author of A Place For Us, etc. to the Greater Seattle Area. Also, our local South Asian writer Indu Sunderesan conducted a creative writing workshop.
