Santosh Kumari is a member of the Punjabi Women’s Writing Group and has attended a creative writing course run by Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) in Wolverhampton. She has read her stories at the Wolverhampton and Ironbridge Literature Festivals and at events celebrating Diwali and Vaisakhi with other Punjabi Women.

Santosh has contributed to collections of Japanese poetry, featured in Ripening Cherries published by Offa’s Press. Earlier this year the Arts Foundry published her childhood experience in the Living Memory Book and The Faith Initiative magazine has also included her poem ‘A Divine Journey’ in its publication.

Santosh took early retirement from social work with the local council office to spend time with her family.

Working with her fellow poets from the Punjabi Women Writers Group, Santosh was commissioned by the Boundary Way Project in 2020 to write and perform a poem as part of their Winter Wonder Programme.
