Prajwala Dixit

Prajwala Dixit is an author, journalist, documentary filmmaker and theatre practitioner whose works have been produced and published by local and national organizations, including the National Film Board of Canada, CBC, The Globe and Mail, The National Post, POV, J-Source, Newfoundland Quarterly, Breakwater Books, the Arts and Culture Centre, and Artistic Fraud. Her work often marries the two worlds she belongs to—India and Canada—while elevating melanin-rich voices. Winner of the Arts and Letters Award, and a silver finalist at the Atlantic Journalism Awards, Prajwala also spearheads an annual fundraiser called Diyas for Diversity that has raised more than $9,000 to add 178 new titles to the public libraries of Newfoundland and Labrador, with the goal of amplifying literary diversity. She calls both Bengaluru and St. John’s home, where she lives with her family, consuming stories through film and books.
