Rahul Misra is an award winning writer…

…who writes poems on his phone, which means most people believe he is a social media addict. But being misunderstood has been his superpower ever since he was growing up in small town India.

His work has been featured on the Medium homepage multiple times and he has been named a Top Writer in the Poetry and Short Story categories on the website. His writings have been published in the Ink In Thirds magazine, ESPN Cricinfo, Kavitanjali, The Junction, Lit Up, PS I Love You, and the Native Petals anthology.

Poetry remains his first love but he also dabbles in short stories and creative non-fiction.

Artist’s Statement

I often find myself thinking about what it really means to be me. It must be a sum of what I am, where I come from and how I have ended up here, but I am certain that another person who makes the exact choices I made would still be very different. There is something else, something unique, something ordinary that defines my existence and my writing is an attempt to understand what this strange substance might be.
