I'm Kamala Puligandla and I write fiction, essays, and other ditties. My first novel, Zigzags, is forthcoming from Not A Cult Media.

I attribute my fabulous weirdo status to Oberlin College, and I received my MFA in Fiction from UC Riverside. I've had the great pleasure of attending workshops and residencies at the Squaw Valley Community of Writers, VONA, The Vermont Studio Centers, The Home School, This Will Take Time, and Yefe Nof.

I live in Los Angeles, where I also eat, snob, wear elastic-waisted pants, skulk around the farmer's market, attempt to go to the Y, swipe on Tinder, and thrift for accessories to liven up my style. I'm from Oakland, CA and have previously lived there, Portland, OR, and Chicago, IL.

I'm very confident that gossip and secrets are the key to every good story, so always feel free to send me yours, and get in touch if you'd like to collaborate.
