Vanaja Malathy believes in the power of writing. Writing is a lonely endeavor. Right from the time an idea or a thought enters the mind, a writer feels a restlessness to give it a shape, edit and re-edit and then, above all, to share it with the world. A writer feels an immense joy of fulfillment after the work is published.

Vanaja Malathy is thankful to the various journals that have seen her work in print. Her latest venture is her short story and poems being selected by TMYS Review in association with Centre of Asia Pacific Initiatives( CAPI) University of Victoria. Anonymous Was A Woman and TMYS Review Dec 2023 are available worldwide via Amazon both as ebooks and paperbacks.

Vanaja Malathy is ever grateful to Literary Yard. A number of her works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry have appeared in this journal. This is highly motivating to her as an author.
