Hello & welcome to my blog!
My name is Rachana and I’m a 17 year old writer from Hong Kong. I fall in love with characters from books and endeavour to have fewer existential crises. Sometimes, I’m lost & sad. Sometimes, I’m the girl standing in the rain & laughing up at the sky.
I believe in the magic of creating things. I write poetry, short stories, and YA novels. My poetry has been published in places such as Lockjaw Magazine, Hypertrophic Literary, Diode, and The Blueshift Journal. You can find links to various published poems here. If you’re interested in reading more of my poetry, I invite you to check out my tumblr blog, rupturing. In addition, my work has been recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards and Hollins University. I was a mentee in The Adroit Journal Summer Mentorship Program in 2016. I currently serve as a poetry editor for TRACK//FOUR, a literary magazine for writers and artists of color. My free time is also spent sleeping and reading.
