Editorial Reviews

ArtWorks for Freedom - Kay Chernush
"Sweta Srivastava Vikram is no ordinary poet. The 44 poems in this slim volume carry the weight of unspeakable horrors and injustices against women. Sweta's words span the globe. Her spare and evocative phrases weave a dark tapestry of oppressive conventions that in the telling and in our reading and hearing, she helps to unravel."
-- Kay Chernush, Founder/Director, ArtWorks for Freedom
