“The Canvas”-my first publication

Hello everyone!

I write short stories, as you might know and during lockdown, I had managed to write quite a number of them.

I am still learning. Nevertheless, I had given out some of my short stories to online magazines for publication. Honestly, I didn’t expect to be selected. Two of my friends encouraged me to go for it, plus I had this ‘what-if’ factor going on in my head.

I got an email from The Bombay Review, a few weeks back. They decided to have a special segment for student writing, basically teenagers.


My short story, ‘The Canvas’, got published in the ‘Student Edition of The Bombay Review’

I am happy because I really wasn’t expecting this, and it’s huge for me.

I would be grateful, if you all can read the story and tell me how is it, including feedback and constructive criticism.

Thank you so much! ❤️

Take care!

    1. Sorry for being late. I didn’t realise this ended up in the spam section. I don’t know how.

      Anyway, thank you so much. Yes, it’s a start and this is really more than anything I can ask for. I hope one day I’ll be able to publish my book. Fingers crossed!


      1. Keeping my fingers crossed for you too. But don’t be in a hurry. Perfect your craft.
        As encouragement, I can tell you my first published piece was when I was 15… and it’s taken till now to publish the novels
