Gomathy Puri – Surrey Muse

Gomathy Puri is an Indian Canadian writer who has lived most of her life working with different departments of the government in Winnipeg and Vancouver. Over time, all the years of professional writing and Gomathy’s own experience of migration came together to bring forth a keen creative writer. Gomathy writes both fiction and non fiction, and of course, an occasional poem. her first book-length work is a novel titled ‘Island Unto Ourselves’ (Larkuma 2012). The novel explores issues of migration and identity, change and love, struggles and friendships. Gomathy is working on her second novel, and she’s writing a book of creative (humorous) nonfiction.

Gomathy’s nonfiction includes articles where she has explored racism, ageing, and other aspects of life. Some of her writings are available here:
Where are you from?
‘Poem from Geetanjali’ – Tagore
Skeena by Fauzia Rafique ‘a MUST read!!’

Gomathy is a valuable member of the local literary communities in Surrey, New Westminster and Vancouver where she participates in writers groups, and she presents readings at various events.
