The Goa Writers, a group of disparate individuals, has launched a book which draws together a wide range of experiences and ideas, and gives a hint of the melting pot called Goa.

Inside/Out: New writing from Goa is the first anthology of the Goa Writers group, which includes some of the best-known writers in the state, alongside those working to improve their writing skills and learn from group mentoring exercise.

Inside/Out features exclusive, original work from noted novelist and Aldona resident Amitav Ghosh, as well as previously unpublished contributions from more than 20 other prominent writers. In his essay titled Anthony Vaz, Ghosh writes: “I have long been fascinated by nautical dictionaries, especially those that relate to Asian seafarers (or ‘lascars’ as they were once known).”

Over two dozen essays, short stories, fiction, excerpts and more. Other writers include fashioin designer Wendell Rodricks, novelist and veteran ex-editor Victor Rangel-Ribeiro, theatre personality Isabela Santa Rita Vas, aeronautical engineer-turned-writer Aniruddha Sen Gupta, German expat Kornelia Santoro, journalist-activist Vidyadhar Gadgil, journalist Pamela D’Mello, journalist Sheela Jaywant, humour writer Cecil Pinto, ex-airhostess Melinda Coutinho Powell, British expat Helene Derkin Menezes, singer Mario Coelho, journalist Aimee Ginsburg, writer Sucheta Potnis, architect Himanshu Burte, writer Veena Gomes-Patwardhan, Portuguese lawyer-photographer Mafalda Mimoso, awardwinning Konkani writer Damodar Mauzo, former principal Tony de Sa, writer Vivek Menezes, journalist Rosalyn D’Mello, top fashion designer Wendell Rodricks, historian Fatima da Silva Gracias, writer Prava Rai, author and academician Savia Viegas and journalist-publisher Frederick Noronha.
