Hi there/namaskar! Thanks for coming by. My name is Shreya. I’m a creative at heart, but also a budding literary critic and professor. My scholarly leanings led me to the University of Oxford, where I graduated in July 2022 with a BA Honours in English Language and Literature. What you see here is my creative writing and literary discussion website of 5 years+. This is a space for growth, imagined through words. Here you can join me in observing the world, writing about it and enjoying it.
I think the internet is one of the wonderful things to happen for young people who want to share their writing and thoughts on literature. I created Paradise Prose in 2017, inspired by the many creative bloggers I found online. Recently, I have been heavily inspired by works that find intersections between creativity and research, or creativity and historical / cultural knowledge. Hence, I would dedicate the blog in 2022 to Joy Harjo and Paula Gunn Allen, two of my favorite writers.
