Project at Faber —

I will be working on the revision of my Novel-in-Progress entitled, “The Red Moon Trails.” Some of the early chapters were a part of my final assignment at the Oxford University and was rigorously guided by my supervisor Mr. Amal Chatterjee. The first two chapters of the novel were later shortlisted for the Charles Pick Fellowship Award at the University of East Anglia. The extract was also a part of the submission for the Hospital field Residency (UK) where I got selected. I have conducted various Creative Writing Workshops for children and adult alike and my profile can be found here: www.nabinkchhetri.com
