Tamil Literary Garden Announces 2015 Essay Competition


Since its formation in 2001 the Tamil Literary Garden, a registered charity, has been committed to the promotion of studies and literary activities in Tamil, both nationally, in Canada, and internationally.

This mandate is carried out through the promotion of creative writing, translations, book releases, awards, conferences, and workshops. The organization’s annual marquee event is the Tamil Literary Garden Awards – which celebrates preeminent contributions to Tamil literature each year from around the world.

The TLG recently announced their 2015 essay competition, inviting undergraduates and graduate students to submit an essay on the topic: “Renegotiating New Meanings of Self in Tamil Canadian Diaspora.”

Participants’ essays should critically examine the meanings of self in the context of Tamil Diaspora, should not exceed 2000 words and be submitted on or before March 31st 2015 to cheran@uwindsor.ca, with a copy to amuttu@gmail.com.
