Kashmir youth starts e-magazine for young writers

Srinagar, May 5: A 19-year old Faisal Ibni Maqbool from Srinagar has started an e-magazine for young and budding writers who don’t get space in the local publishing houses.

According to a report published in Kashmir Monitor, Faisal, a student of computer sciences, has started Writers’ Capsule (www.writerscapsule.com) for those writers who don’t get any space in local publishing houses and often fail to raise their issues and display writing skills in absence of platform.

“Writers Capsule is the essential online community and resource portal for writers in every stage and genre. It is a resource that offers frequently updated articles and blogs, educational webcasts, informational e-newsletters; and the Writer’s Forum, a lively virtual gathering place where writers share experiences, offer critiques, and make connections,” Faisal said.

He said the writers can post their articles at their own after the approval. “There is no bar on the topic of the article and anyone can post his or her relevant write up on the magazine,” he said.
