Priyam Gupta

On weekdays, Priyam works as a Copywriter and editor in Mumbai. Her weekends are dedicated to freelance writing and other self-activated projects. She writes in a gentle and empathetic tone that tends to focus on discovery and development of the self without sounding didactic. Her preferred writing style is unpretentious and unassuming.

The oldest form of escape, a decryption of the reality I have no choice but to live in, and an expression of the patterns of lessons learned, dreams fantasized, nightmares endured, and worlds explored walked onto a page.

My name is Priyam. I am a writer, available for hire.

For the last three or so years, my focus has been to carve a niche in the field of content writing and editing. I have written professionally for a variety of platforms ranging from blogs and brand websites to mobile applications (See: Haute Stuff, Sling, VoLT on the Play Store) and online magazines. My academic background in Advertising and Public Relations helps me weigh my words carefully and use the most fitting ones in their designated spaces.

In September 2017, my love of reading, writing, and sharing quality literature with other people pushed me toward shouldering the role of a co-editor for an online publication named The Sleep Aquarium. The magazine features prose, poetry, and artwork based on the dreams of their authors and artists.

On a side note, I also have a keen interest in scripts and screenplay writing. I have previously written both scripts and screenplays for several short films, one of which, named 'Tea Time', went on to win the fifth place in an annual contest held by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures in India. In a strange turn of events that surprised even me, I dipped my toe in the director's shoes on a couple of occasions and am not completely embarrassed by the results.

I am constantly in awe of the sheer persona of certain words in the English and Hindi languages, and consider it an affront of the highest degree to see any words thrown around meaninglessly.

Every day, I find myself fixated on a brand new lightning bolt that strikes me down and does not let up until I sit down at my desk and compose a piece dissecting it to easily consumable bits. Today, it is the theory that my heart beats at different rates in the company of different people.

If you are:

  • searching for engaging copy to accompany your graphic design that will appeal to the defined target audience;
  • trying to think of the perfect word to describe something but just can't seem to get it out even though it feels like it is right there at the tip of your tongue;
  • sitting on a great idea but are unsure about the best way of translating it to words, or better yet, looking for great ideas and great words; or
  • in the mood for stories and poems to suit your mood, both bright and gloomy;
