Sreshtha Sen is a poet from Delhi, India, and one of the founding editors of The Shoreline Review, an online journal for and by South Asian poets. She studied Literatures in English at Delhi University and completed her MFA at Sarah Lawrence College. Her work can be found published or forthcoming in Bitch Media, BOAAT, Breakwater Review, Hyperallergic, The Margins, Meridian, Split Lip Magazine and elsewhere. She was the 2017-18 Readings/Workshops Fellow at Poets & Writers and currently lives and teaches in Las Vegas, where she’s the 2018 BMI Ph.D. Fellow in Poetry.
Sreshtha Sen's ability to honor the formal traditions of both the ghazal and sonnet while bringing both forms to the forefront of contemporary American poetry for a fresh readership is matched only by her ability to navigate and fuse more complex opposites — history vs. present, Urdu vs. English, history vs. mythology, colonialism vs. autonomy.
