Meet Zilka Joseph

Indie Blu(e) Publishing

Zilka Joseph and Indie Blu(e) Publishing met through Indie’s The Kali Project, which Zilka submitted poems for. We were very fortunate to have poetry by Zilka in this collection, she is a particularly addictive poet with a keen artistic eye and someone not afraid to write out truths.

Indie Blu(e) caught up with Zilka Joseph, who is always creatively busy writing books and submitting successfully to anthologies or editing others’ works.

Meet Somrita Urni Ganguly

Indie Blu(e) Publishing

It can be a daunting task to work with such talented writers/poets as Indie Blu(e) Publishing has had the fortune of working with. Somrita Urni Ganguly is no exception. We met via The Kali Project and have followed her work since. She is literally an explosion of talent and energy and the very best slam-poetry live speaker we’ve seen in a very long time. Somrita’s boundless energy and enthusiasm is infectious and a beautiful thing to witness. She truly loves what she does and that’s probably one of many reasons she’s so good at everything she turns her hand to.

Meet Nadia Garofalo

Indie Blu(e) Publishing

With Relative Traumas Nadia Garofalo has taken her gift as a song-writer and poet, and merged the two together to create a striking collection. One of the most exciting projects I have worked on lately, due to the passionate truth of Garofalo’s writing, which Indie Blu(e) Publishing first discovered through our anthology SMITTEN.

Nadia Garofalo is a childhood friend of Indie Blu(e)’s author Georgia Park and when she submitted to SMITTEN (purchase HERE) we recognized that unique blend of songwriting ability and wordsmithing. We were so impressed with Nadia’s writing and her being an accomplished musician and human-being.

Singer, songwriter, musician, and poet Nadia Garofalo is a throwback to the days of Byron and all who felt deeply, intensely, piercingly. As a songwriter, Garofalo has the precision of a wordsmith – she knows how to infiltrate the soul and will rend your emotions with her refrain. This debut…
