Born in the United States and raised in rural Ohio, A. Anupama’s experience as a first-generation Indian-American woman gives a unique perspective to her writing. She graduated from Vermont College of Fine Arts with an MFA and received my BA in biological sciences from Northwestern University. She has been involved with medical publishing for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and legal publishing for the American Bar Association. An attendee of the Hudson Valley Writers’ Center fiction workshop with David Surface,Anupama has studied with Jen Bervin, Ralph Angel, Leslie Ullman, and Jody Gladding. She has brought her love of yoga, Indian cooking, science, photography, and nature to my poetry. 

A. Anupama’s work has appeared or is forthcoming in The Alembic, Bayou Magazine, The Bitter Oleander, The Cape Rock, Crack The Spine, Cutbank Literary Journal, decomP, Diverse Voices Quarterly, Ellipsis, Forge, Green Hills Literary Lantern, Monkeybicycle, Numéro Cinq, Permafrost, Saint Ann’s Review, Schuylkill Valley Journal Of The Arts, The Summerset Review, Tulane Review, and Wild Violet.
