Nisa Asokan co-runs Fifth Planet Press / Tight Bros Network,
an independent multimedia publishing and promotions company. She studied narrative fiction writing at New York University under
Nicholas Christopher where she earned a writing degree. She wrote two books before deciding it is much more fun to put out other artists' work, and has produced a catalog of over fifteen titles for Fifth Planet Press.
She was a superstar news research librarian in the brain department at the
Atlanta Journal-Constitution with a solid tour of duty in the media trenches. She led the all volunteer
nonprofit, Eyedrum Art & Music Gallery as Board Chair and music director during its formative years. These days she's haunting the hills of Austin, TX and monitoring the halls of Tight Bros Network while stirring the pot for Studio Pub, a venue in development.
