Inspired By My Museum book launch 19 November 2014

Last night was the book launch for the Sampad South AsianArts 'Inspired By My Museum' poetry anthology and as one of the writers included in the book, I was invited to the High Commission of India in London for the evening.  It was a stunning historic building (see the pictures below) and it was lovely to think that my husband and I were walking on the same floor that Ghandi once did.  There were contributors from all over the world, India, Canada, the United Kingdom and Italy, to name but a few, who had entered and been selected as entries in the anthology for the International Writing Competition 2013 - 2014, and those that could make the launch were presented with a copy of the book on the night.

The launch started with speeches from the organisers, publishers, an MP from Birmingham and a Minister from the India High Commission and then there were readings from the book and a photo call for all the writers, which was held in Ghandi Hall.

After the presentations, there was a reception with drinks and canap├ęs.

The anthology can be purchased using the ISBN 978-0-9565416-4-2 and further details can be found on

Sampad will be launching a new competition in January 2015 with the theme 'Inspired by Ghandi' and I will share the details with my followers once they become available.
