DU-Vidha is a Journal of Creative Writing. It is a bilingual journal in both Hindi and English. Its title, DU-Vidha is intended to signify (a) literary genres (vidha) as practised in Delhi University, as well as (b) duvidha, creative dilemma and deliberation, as experienced by writers in negotiating what to say and just how to say it. The journal will be published twice a year. It will be a free open-access on-line journal (with no print edition.)

While the journal is open to all members of the University of Delhi -- in all its Colleges, Departments, Centres, and Institutes - it is meant primarily for students, undergraduate as well as postgraduate. Some space will be available for contributions by members of the faculty and staff as well

Besides poems and short stories, contributions in other literary genres too, such as imaginative prose of all kinds, will be welcome, in both Hindi and English. We also invite paintings, sketches and photographs for publication. Creative designs for a logo for the journal, displaying the name DU-Vidha in both English and Hindi (i.e., in roman as well as devanagari alphabets), will be especially welcome.
