A literary magazine

Read, be read, see, be visible …

DoublSpeak is bringing to you its 7th issue. It is a bit overwhelming how authors and artists from around the world responded to the requests and calls for submissions to make this issue alive. We have poems and stories from all around the world – Russia, Iran, Turkey, Ireland, United States of America, Philippines, England and of course India. For the first time we are publishing a one act play in the fiction section. Also the occurrence of digitally created images to compliment a poem as a photo-story is a first of many. We have wonderful collaborative pieces by friends and people who never even met each other. We have two very beautifully written letters to critically analyse two of our previously published pieces. Our authors and artists comprise a very diverse group of scientists, professional and amateur poets, film-makers, recovering alcoholics, corporate professionals, doctors, students and academicians. We hope you will love reading this issue. Please read and share with your friends and family. It is completely free. We encourage you to write to us with your critical and analytical views about the pieces published. We will publish them as letters. As the managing editor of DoubleSpeak, I remain grateful to my friends and the artists who had faith in us. Happy reading!
