On our new chapter, the Purple Pencil Project

The new year has come, for us, as the calm before the storm.

Saurabh Garg started onWriting as an Indian book review blog way back in 2014 with the sole purpose of connecting with authors and gathering their thoughts on (yes) writing, and publishing occasional book reviews. This stayed pretty much the same until three months ago, I quit a job and shifted focus to this near full-time, with plans to grow it into a reading community, a literary company and so much more.

With our vision changing and widening in scope, we thought it was time to find a name that reflected it and thus was born the Purple Pencil Project or P3 (courtesy Saurabh).

The purple pencil is our logo, and ‘project’ was in my view, all-encompassing enough to fit whatever idea we have and may have going ahead. Other options, which I took almost a week to think, were Bookville, The Caption, The Paperwick Review and Books Ink.

So here we are, still dedicated to books, reading, writing and everything in between the three but just under a different name.

We are now:
