Hi, I'm Neeru.

I'm an Indian Tamil writer. 

Smiling Indian woman

For my day job, I help businesses tell their story. 

I have many names. Content designer, conversational designer, UX writer, content strategist, content marketer, copywriter, copyeditor... I've been one or more of these at a time throughout my career. 

I create meaningful and joyful experiences and build personality and voice for brands in product flows as well as marketing assets. 

In my eventful career, I've worked in B2B SaaS, social media, tech, telecom, higher education, publishing and academia. 


I also have my own stories to tell.

I write flash, micro and short fiction that marries magical realism with feminism to tell intimate stories of Indian women in urban surroundings. In all my creative work, I unpack women's relationship with their bodies and self, explore the idea of love and romance, and ultimately hope to challenge patriarchy and tradition. I frequently draw inspiration from fairy tales and manga. I have an MFA in Creative Writing (Fiction) from Bowling Green State University. I'm represented by Dr. Uwe Stender of Triada US Literary Agency

My work has been published in CRAFT Literary, The Maine Review, South Florida Poetry Journal, Stonecoast Review, GASHER, and other journals. I've been nominated for Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net. I've also been a finalist at the CRAFT Short Fiction Prize and an honorary mention for the Norton Girault Prize for Fiction. 

I'm currently working on a queer YA novel (think The Half of It in book form).

I'd love to help.
