Every year since 1994 the University of Stirling has hosted an Indian creative writer: from Namita Gokhale (novelist and founder of the Jaipur Literature Festival, the largest free literary festival on earth) to Man Asian Literary Prize shortlister, Siddharth Chowdhury, to emerging poet, Mihir Vatsa, our youngest fellow at 23.
The Charles Wallace Fellowship brings Indian creative writers to the University of Stirling through the funding and support of the Charles Wallace India Trust and the British Council India. Each year a different writer produces new work, engages with undergraduates, postgraduates and staff, and presents a public reading.
In 2014/15 we celebrated 20 years of the Fellowship at Stirling. In partnership with the Charles Wallace India Trust, we have developed an online writers’ gallery. Explore the work of our fellows as they reflect on their time in Stirling and share their creative work.
