Her works have been published in Cordite Poetry Review, Voiceworks, TOS magazine, Gulmohar Quarterly, Archer, Refinery 29, and other Indian and Australian publications. When Madhvi isn’t writing she goes on air on 3CR at “Writing Home” a space for migrant writers of colour, and their processes navigating home, life, and love.
