Rye has inspired Anwesha from her first visit in 1997. Several published and unpublished works are based here, in her heart’s home, where she has lived for a dozen years. She is an award-winning writer, academic, actor and poet. Anwesha’s doctoral thesis was published in May 2023. This illustrated talk will bring to life ‘Writing Rye in Light’. This is Anwesha’s fourth collection to be published and is a collaboration between photography and poetry. The Rye Arts Festival is proud to launch this new book.
