Verses, Tales, and Thoughts: A Literary Odyssey

By Varsha Panikar

Bodies Of Desire

An an ongoing anthology of stories, memories and epiphanies told by combining various mediums with prose and poetry. The series explores intimacy and desire by allowing it to become a powerful and vulnerable means of expression and exploration into themes of identity, intimacy, empathy, and queer love and kinship. Excerpts from the series have appeared in Love Portions, an issue of Rogue by Ratio Auream Publishers, available on Amazon & Kindle. Artwork from the series has also been showcased at "Queer Futures Archive" at Parramatta's Riverside Theater, Sydney - as a part of "Burn All The Books That Call You The Unknown" exhibition in 2020. An audio-story from the series has also been published on Lonely Heart Club, created by Anuja Ghosalkar, for gender-positive & queer audio-erotica that ranges from poetry, literature to confessions and real-life tales. Bodies Of Desire has also been adapted into a spoken-word film by the same name, currently streaming on Nowness Asia, Nowness and GirlsInFilms. Watch the film here. Follow the project on Instagram. Currently seeking graphic designers and visual artists to collaborate on the book. Preview below.
