Editor in Chief
Pratibha founded The Literary Nest to create a platform for emerging writers around the world. She hopes this online magazine turns into a permanent print publication, and the writers first published here rise to prominence and influence the literary canon. Did someone say hubris? But remember the ‘little old ant.’
“But he’s got high hopes, he’s got high hopes
He’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes
For Pratibha, this is a labor of love. She is a former English teacher and humble writer whose stories and poems have found some warm homes.
Poetry matters. Poetry is the well-choreographed dance of words accompanied by rhythmic sounds, and lyrical movement of the human spirit. — Pratibha Kelapure
