About Us

Airplane Poetry Movement was co-founded in December 2013 by Nandini Varma and Shantanu Anand.

Since then, we have hosted over 100 poetry events, we have delivered over 75 workshops, and have co-organised India’s first ever National Youth Poetry Slam, which featured performances by 25 college teams, as well as featured performances by poets such as Sarah Kay and Kalki Koechlin.

Right now, we’re on a mission to help poets take matters into their own hands and take their poetry to the next level, which is why we publish weekly blogs with training material on writing, marketing and performing your poetry. Subscribe to our blog to get weekly emails with the latest training material!
