Today The Wise Owl completes one year. We started our journey with the Dawn Edition on 1st November 2021 and slowly but steadily made our way through the Tangerine, Pearl, Lilac, Topaz, Tulip, Lapis, Cassia, Ochre, Jade, Azure and Pine Editions. The odyssey was not without its struggles, but we are happy and grateful that poets, writers and artists from across the globe have joined The Wise Owl cavalcade.
To celebrate our 1st anniversary, we have picked up sienna, the colour of earth, and added a dash of gold to make it festive. Our Team has always worked hard to make each edition special for the readers and viewers. However, we have tried to make the Sienna & Gold Edition extra special. Our Interview segment is a Booker Prize Special featuring an interview with Daisy Rockwell, who was awarded the international Booker Prize 2022 for her translation of Geetanjali Shree’s book ‘Tomb of Sand.’ We also have an insightful interview with Graeme Macrae Burnet whose book ‘Case Study’ was longlisted for the Booker prize 2022. The Visual Art segment has interviews of Rachel Brown Lee, an artist who excels in high realism large format charcoal artwork and Kerry Ann Lyons, an extraordinary wildlife and pop artist. This time around our Poetry, Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, reviews and podcast segments feature two works from each contributor’s pen.
A big thanks to our subscribers, readers, viewers and contributors for becoming a part of The Wise Owl Community. Three Cheers for The Wise Owl! May it grow and prosper!
