Srishti is a Bengali immigrant poet, writer, and political organiser whose practice lies on intersections of grief, identity, and digitality. Currently recovering from personal and political heartbreak, Srishti is slowly getting back into writing more — about politics and popular culture centering grief, loves, and desire. When they aren’t writing/reading/working, they love cooking big pots of curry – poetic, warm, and nurturing of broken hearts.
