Ekushey Boi Mela serves as an avenue of opportunity for new writers to introduce their literary work to book lovers. The newcomers in the literary arena wait all the year for this book fair to publish their new works. As popular and reputed writers hit the bestseller records, new writers are usually lost in the obscure crowd of writers.
This year, Young Observer is introducing some of the promising young writers who have proved their intransigence in their own field of writing.
Niaz Ahmed, the CEO of Corporate Ask, is a well-known resume development specialist and corporate trainer. Recently, he has written four books which focus on creating and implementing career development strategies.

The book Campus to Corporate is a step-by-step guide to achieve personal and professional goals -- how to write a resume, how to apply for a job, how to get more calls for interview and how to do well in the interview -- all these crucial issues are explained in the book. It can contribute towards preparing yourself for corporate life from the very beginning of your university life.
Another book, Shofol Jara Kemon Tara, of this writer is both a witty and an informative read for aspiring career enthusiasts who are willing to bridge the gap between who they are and who they want to be. A number of successful people from this generation from twenty two different sectors have shared their stories, challenges and the way they had overcome all the backdrops in their journey towards success.
On the other hand, the book Link Pete LinkedIn goes a long way to teach us about networking and contact building through a complete LinkedIn profile.
Khairul Islam is an assistant professor of Dhaka University whose first novel Shopno was published in 2015. Since then, he has continued to publish two more highly regarded works Senior Junior (2016) and Chena Manush Ochena Bhalobasa (2017). Within a short time, he has managed to create a place for himself in the field of literature with his creative spark, despite only publishing four novels so far.
Shopno is a plangent portrayal of the struggle, plights, failure, passion and eventual success of a middle class youth who left his village dreaming of a successful life.
Senior Junior is based on much of his own experience, having lived in Dhaka University dormitory earlier in his life. He writes about his incisive observations on the various social strata, struggle, love and betrayal in university life with a feeling of authenticity.
In his novel Chena Manush Ochena Bhalobasa, he has explored the psychological aspects of human love and emotions. The story revolves around a journey of ever-growing love and romance through the regular ups and downs of life.
