THE LITERARY JEWELS
An Online Magazine of Art, Culture and Education
‘The Literary Jewels’ (TLJ) is an online quarterly magazine focusing on the issues of Art, Culture and Education. Although the magazine was officially launched in October 2011, yet the roots can be traced back to the blog entitled ‘Literary Jewels’ (www.literaryjewels.com), a brain child of Amritbir Kaur, which was started in the year 2007.
The magazine ‘The Literary Jewels’ was commenced by Ms. Amritbir Kaur, a poet, translator, columnist and critic, with a view to provide a befitting platform to the worthy talent that is coming off age by now.
TLJ takes into its fold various genres of literature, including fiction, poetry, short plays and various other forms of non-fiction too. Apart from this the magazine also presents before its readers talented artists, photographers; also writers by the means of interviews and book through the lenses of critics in a book review.
We at ‘The Literary Jewels’ make it a point to devote a special place to the budding talent in the students, who can display a skilful play with words. TLJ also keeps its readers informed about various literary events happening around like book launches, book fairs, literary festivals etc.
A venture of ‘Literary Jewels’, the magazine ‘The Literary Jewels’ was started as a one man show with all the energies and efforts put in by Ms. Amritbir Kaur, for whom it was a dream project. By and by as the readership and reach of the magazine expanded, more and more people offered their services and displayed enthusiasm to be a part of the TLJ team. The members who are proud to be a part of this venture are:
