The Ka.Na.Su Discussion Forum

A Conversation with Tamil Writer Yuvan Chandrasekar

Vishnupuram Literary Circle is conducting a series of literary discussions with various authors and artists across the globe. This series is named after a Tamil literary critique Ka.Na.Subramanian, in honor of his contribution to Tamil Literature.

The first discussion is scheduled with Tamil Writer Yuvan Chandrasekar. He has authored five poem collections and eleven novels. His short stories have been released in eight anthologies. His stories are unique for their metafictional nature. Yuvan was awarded Sparrow Literary Award in 2019 for his poems and the Canada based Tamil Literay Garden Award in 2011 for his novel – Payanak Kathai.

The discussion forum will be held over zoom and will also be available live on our YouTube channel.
