Announcing the love-ly winners of the Love Chronicles contest!

Contest Name:

Love Chronicles Writing Contest 2024



Love Chronicles is a ballad, an ode to the muse of love that guides everyone. Love comes in so many different forms, and its driving force is unparalleled. The works I’ve read have been so incredibly diverse and passionate. I am blown away every day by the power of words to move people., As the day of love approaches, I hope that everyone who contributed to this anthology, and everyone who is reading this, takes time to cherish themselves and their loved ones.

I felt incredibly privileged to read and immerse myself all the creative and exquisite works while judging the contest. I found all of them incredibly riveting and unforgettable. Judging and picking winners was incredibly difficult, because all of the works were phenomenal.

I hope this anthology reaches everyone who wants to read and reflect on the shades of love, and that everyone reading this keeps following the threads of inspiration they find!

Warm regards,
Mrunal Rajadhyaksha
